The Latin America and the Caribbean Competency Virtual Series is an opportunity for students to learn more about different topics related to this area and connect with the guest speakers outside of the classroom environment. The students will also have the chance of discussing and asking questions regarding the topic of the presentation. The first presentation will be by Caelan Hidalgo Schick, Panoramas Graduate Coordinator and Graduate student in the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs. She will be talking about how the rising popularity of products marketed as “superfoods” is leading to questioning of how sustainable these “trendy” foods and products truly are. Consumers of superfoods from rich northern countries are unknowingly contributing to unsustainable agriculture exploitation of indigenous farmers and land, and forced labor practices.
