It's now easier to access 171 curated references on structural racism in the U.S. food system. A Zotero library is now available for the fifth edition of Annotated Bibliography on Structural Racism Present in the U.S. Food System.
Two enhancements are announced with the release of the fifth edition of the Annotated Bibliography on Structural Racism Present in the U.S. Food System published by the MSU Center for Regional Food Systems: references are compiled in a Zotero group library and video resources are now included.
The Zotero library will make it easier to access and cite the annotated bibliography’s sources. Zotero is a free software that lets users easily save, manage, and cite sources.
“As a student, it can take a long time to get oriented to the academic literature in a new subject area,” said Kelsey Watson, an MSU graduate student and contributing author to the fifth edition.
“Having the annotated bibliography available in Zotero allows easy access to the information it contains. The Zotero library gives students the freedom to search specific content that is relevant to their interests and field of study.”
The fifth edition includes 9 videos and 47 new citations.
“The growth in content of the annotated bibliography reflects the surge of new literature and scholarship that is emerging at the intersection of structural racism and food systems,” says Rich Pirog, MSU Center for Regional Food Systems Director.
The annotated bibliography offers a foundation for learning and communicating about racism in the U.S. food system. It curates writing and videos that explore structural racism both across the national system and in specific food system sectors. These include commentaries on and analysis of white-centeredness in the local food movement.
Citations for the annotated bibliography are crowd-sourced – collected via a nationwide request sent through networks of food systems practitioners, researchers, educators, and scholars. Six students and two Center for Regional Food Systems staff have contributed annotations since the first edition of the bibliography.
