The MSU Center for Regional Food Systems (CRFS) requests your help identifying citations to update the seventh edition of CRFS’s publication: An Annotated Bibliography on Structural Racism Present in the U.S. Food System.

The mission of CRFS is to engage Michigan, the United States and the world in applied research, education and outreach to develop regionally integrated, sustainable food systems. The Center is committed to understanding the ways in which power and inequity manifest within the food system, such as structural racism.

An Annotated Bibliography on Structural Racism Present in the U.S. Food System contains selected resources and publications focused on recent research and outreach on structural racism in the U.S. food system. The seventh edition of the resource, published in January 2020, contains over 275 citations including 10 new videos and 46 new journal citations.

All entries in the annotated bibliography are also available in Zotero, a free software that lets users easily save, manage, and cite sources. View the Zotero library for the annotated bibliography.

It has been exciting to see how much new literature and scholarship is emerging at the intersection of structural racism and food systems. To that end, CRFS is asking for your help identifying additional citations for an updated edition of the bibliography to be published late fall 2020 or January 2021.

We are seeking citations that refer to research, analysis, outreach, and commentary on BOTH structural racism AND the U.S. food system.

While there are many important resources on racism and anti-racism in the U.S., and/or on the state of the food system, our key filter for inclusion in the bibliography is a link between structural racism and one or more aspects of the U.S. food system.

The following citations will be accepted for review:

  • Peer-reviewed journal articles, and peer-critiqued articles, reports, bulletins, or books
  • Other scholarly or substantive information produced outside traditional commercial publishing and distribution channels (e.g. theses and dissertations, technical reports, working papers, evaluation reports, conference proceedings, publications from NGOs, INGOs, think tanks and policy institutes, patent, and preprints)
  • Video resources including documentaries, motion pictures, television series, TED Talks, and interviews
  • Recordings of webinars

We will not be including blogs, newspaper articles, tweets, podcasts, etc. because of the sheer volume of these resources.

Once a suggestion is submitted there will be a simple vetting process to determine the fit of submission; please note that not all submissions may be included in the eighth edition. We hope to publish the eighth edition by mid-January 2021.

We would like as many suggestions as possible. Please share this request widely on Listservs and with colleagues and friends who may have additional resources to include!

Deadline for citation submission is Monday, September 21, 2020 at 11:59 PM, PST.

Send all submissions or questions to Dr. Kimberly N. Carr at carrkim1@msu.edu or Rich Pirog at rspirog@msu.edu

When making a submission please include (if possible):

  • Author(s)
  • Title
  • Web link to easily locate the submission
  • Full citation in APA format (if available)
