Today there are over a billion hungry people on the planet, more than ever before in history. While the global food crisis dropped out of the news in 2008, it returned in 2011 (and is threatening us again in 2012) and remains a painful reality for the world's poor and underserved. Why, in a time of record harvests, are a record number of people going hungry? And why are a handful of corporations making record profits? In Food Rebellions! Crisis and the Hunger for Justice, authors Eric Holt-Giménez and Raj Patel with Annie Shattuck offer us the real story behind the global food crisis and document the growing trend of grassroots solutions to hunger spreading around the world. Food Rebellions! contains up to date information about the current political and economic realities of our food systems. Anchored in political economy and an historical perspective, it is a valuable academic resource for understanding the root causes of hunger, growing inequality, the industrial agri-foods complex, and political unrest. Using a multidisciplinary approach, Holt-Giménez and Patel give a detailed historical analysis of the events that led to the global food crisis and document the grassroots initiatives of social movements working to forge food sovereignty around the world. These social movements and this inspiring book compel readers to confront the crucial question: Who is hungry, why, and what can we do about it?

In a groundbreaking book, based on six years of on the ground reporting, expert David Rieff offers a masterly review about whether ending extreme poverty and widespread hunger is within our reach as increasingly promised. Can we provide enough food for 9 billion (2 billion more than today) in 2050, especially the bottom poorest in the Global South? Some of the most brilliant scientists, world politicians, and aid and development persons forecast an end to the crisis of massive malnutrition in the next decades. However, food rights campaigners (many associated with green parties in both the rich and poor world) and traditional farming advocates reject the intervention of technology, biotech solutions, and agribusiness. Many economists predict that with the right policies, poverty in Africa can end in twenty years. “Philanthrocapitalists” Bill Gates and Warren Buffett spend billions on technology to “solve” the problem, relying on technology. Rieff, who has been studying and reporting on humanitarian aid and development for thirty years, puts the claims of both sides under a microscope and asks if any one of these efforts will solve the crisis. He cites climate change, unstable governments that receive aid, the cozy relationship between the philanthropic sector and agricultural giants like Monsanto and Syngenta, that are often glossed over. The Reproach of Hunger is the only book to look at this debate refusing to take the cherished claims of either side at face value. Rieff answers a careful “yes” to this crucial challenge to humanity’s future. The answer to the central question is yes, if we don’t confuse our hopes with realities and good intensions with capacities.

The purpose of this qualitative study is to examine popular culture as a site of public pedagogy where women learn about their role in society and form identities based on those perceptions. More specifically, this research focuses on how and what women fans of The Hunger Games (THG) series learn about activism and advocating for social justice causes from interacting with this popular culture phenomenon in online spaces. Three theories frame this study, including poststructural feminism, popular culture as public pedagogy, and convergence culture. The design of the study utilizes a cyber ethnographic approach to examine the online sub-culture of women learners as they engage with the THG franchise and each other in virtual and physical spaces. Data collection consists of in-depth interviews with 10 participants, online observations of fan activities, and review of 320+ relevant cultural documents and artifacts. I employ a fantasy theme analysis of the data collected, along with conducting a critical discourse analysis (CDA) of the film adaptations of the THG series and THG fandom.The findings of the fantasy theme analysis, detailed in Chapter Four, identify four main themes: a) a central legend/myth is key to a shared vision among fans; b) the heros journey becomes internalized by fans as they advocate for causes important to them; c) the fight for justice transcends a focus on the individual and moves to desire for collective change; and d) revolution is a moral, political, and immediate game for fans, with very real consequences for themselves and society. These fantasy themes coalesce into a larger rhetorical vision shared among fan activists, as they work for a more just and equal world. The CDA yields four additional themes, providing added understanding to the main fantasy themes. The CDA themes, detailed in Chapter Five, include: a) both the films and fan activists transform the person/character of Katniss Everdeen into a legend and myth; b) the films create a shared currency consisting of symbol, salute, and song, which fans exchange in support of one another; c) both District citizens in the films and women fan activists personalize the risk and reward of rebellion; and d) in the reel and real spaces, fan activists hack THG narrative and use media to create a hunger for justice among the larger population. The study ends with implications of the findings for theory and practice, as well as outlines the limitations of the study and makes suggestions for future research.

In his short story “The Hunger Artist,” Kafka imagined the theatrical career of a “professional faster” whose performance consists merely in displaying his own starving body before an avid audience. Kafka thus paradoxically suggested that hunger, mere emptiness working its way through declining bodies, may be a privileged theatrical object. Hunger often signals an anchorage in socio-historical reality, and invites extreme situations on stage, articulating large-scale cataclysms (famines, the devastation of war) with personal tragedies (hunger-strikes, anorexia, etc.) in which characters experience the tenuousness of their own lives. Whether in the comic or in the tragic mode, staged hunger metaphorizes various kinds of starvation – material greed, spiritual, emotional, sexual starvation, and even linguistic insufficiency. This volume explores the aesthetic and ethical issues raised by hunger on the stage in the English-speaking world. It investigates the paradox of the hypervisibility of the thinning body and shows how, throughout history, hunger has given shape to innovative, powerfully transgressive dramaturgies.
