Seth M. Holmes, Ph.D., MD, is on faculty in the Division of Society and Environment and the Joint Program in Medical Anthropology at U. of California, Berkeley. He has worked on social hierarchies, health inequities, and the ways in which such asymmetries are naturalized, normalized, and resisted in the context of transnational im/migration, agro-food systems, and health care. He has received national and international awards from the fields of anthropology, sociology, and geography, including the Margaret Mead Award. Seth will discuss his research along with a farmworker family who has collaborated with him on his book and his efforts to foster change in our food system.
