Bryan Dale is a PhD student in Human Geography at the University of Toronto. His research interests include political economy and political ecology generally and, more specifically, climate justice, food sovereignty and social movements. Bryan’s MA thesis, “A Beautiful Picture of Chaos”: La Vía Campesina and the Convergence of Food Sovereignty and Climate Justice, covered these topics. His doctoral research continues in this vein, specifically looking at the potential for Canadian farmers’ organizations like the National Farmers Union and Union Paysanne to contribute to the systemic change that is implicit in calls for food sovereignty and climate justice. Bryan has a diverse background that has included working in social services and communications and doing community organizing on political and environmental campaigns.
