“Big Hunger” Book Talk and Signing
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Bloomberg School of Public Health

Andy Fisher is a leading national expert on community food security. In 1994, he co-founded the Community Food Security Coalition, a national alliance of groups working on food access and local food, and he led that organization until 2011. During this time, he created and publicized the concept of community food security, and played a key role in building the food movement. He has worked on a wide variety of food system topics, including food policy councils, community food assessments, healthy corner stores, coalition building, and farm-to-cafeteria. He has taught at various universities in Oregon, and is an adjunct instructor in the public health department at Portland State University.

 

Address:

Room W5030
Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
615 N. Wolfe Street
Baltimore, MD

 

About Big Hunger:

In Big Hunger,” Andy Fisher takes a critical look at the business of hunger and offers a new vision for the anti-hunger movement. From one perspective, anti-hunger leaders have been extraordinarily effective. Food charity is embedded in American civil society, and federal food programs have remained intact while other anti-poverty programs have been eliminated or slashed. But anti-hunger advocates – reliant on corporations for donations of food and money – are leaving out an essential element of the problem: economic inequality driven by the low wages that corporations pay.

Elden Elmanto "Infinite Loop Spaces in Algebraic Geometry."
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Elden Elmanto, Northwestern University Abstract: A classical theorem in modern homotopy theory states that functors from finite pointed sets to spaces satisfying certain conditions model infinite loop spaces (Segal 1974). This theorem offers a recognition principle for infinite loop spaces. The analogous theorem for Morel-Voevodsky's motivic homotopy theory has been sought for since its inception. In joint work with Marc Hoyois, Adeel Khan, Vladimir Sosnilo and Maria Yakerson, we provide such a theorem. The category of finite pointed sets is replaced by a category where the objects are smooth schemes and the maps are spans whose "left legs" are finite syntomic maps equipped with a K​-theoretic trivialization of its contangent complex. I will explain what this means and how it is not so different from finite pointed sets. In particular, I will explain all the requisite algebraic geometry. Time permitting, I will also provide an explicit model for the motivic sphere spectrum as a torsor over a Hilbert scheme.
