- Monsanto's Past and Our Food Future
- Location: Brown Family Environmental Center
- Time: 5:00 p.m.
- Winner of the 2020 Anthony Lukas Work-in-Progress Award, SEED MONEY: Monsanto's Past and Our Food Future is the definitive history of Monsanto. OSU historian, Bartow J. Elmore, traces Monsanto’s evolution from a chemical startup to a global agrobusiness powerhouse. Elmore examines the company’s past and exposes a huge concern about genetically engineered crop systems: whether they will actually produce the food we need to feed our families in the decades to come. Meet at the BFEC Picnic Shelter.
Bartow J. Elmore teaches environmental and business history at The Ohio State University. For this project he received the J. Anthony Lukas Work-in-Progress Award and a New America fellowship. He lives with his family in Columbus, Ohio. Author website: http://www.bartelmore.com/
