Spotlight on Joshua Sbicca
Associate Professor
Department of of Sociology

Joshua Sbicca is an Associate Professor of Sociology. He studies food as a lens into a broad range of sociological questions around social change, political economy, urban and rural development, ethnoracial and class hierarchies, culture, and power. His recent work studies food systems at intersections of carcerality, gentrification, and racial capitalism. Underlying these interests is an engagement with expanding articulations and practices of food justice that link an array of social movements and social problems. He is the author of Food Justice Now!: Deepening the Roots of Social Struggle and is co-editor of A Recipe for Gentrification: Food, Power, and Resistance in the City.
