19/10/2015 to 23/10/2015

With Bayo Akomolafe, Ijeoma (Ej) Clement-Akomolafe And special guests Charles Eisenstein and Frederique Apffel-Marglin (by videolink) | This course is an exploration of the politics of health, and how the exploitation of cultures and disruption of ecosystems, the practice of patenting, the influence of big money, the mass production of pills, and the toxification of food have led to epidemics, an estrangement from our own bodies, and deeper anxiety for us all.
