Craig Hassel, Prof. of Food Science and Extension Nutritionist. November 2015.
Craig Hassel is Associate Professor of Food Science and Nutrition and Extension Nutritionist at the University of Minnesota. His research explores “issues of food and health with cultural communities holding knowledge that does not correspond with Western science perspectives. This work pivots the culture/science relationship as it repositions scientific inquiry alongside ancient, ancestral and experiential understandings of food and health. The goal is to create models of cross-cultural engagement that reform scientific inquiry to be more respectful of diverse ways of knowing.”
Hassel also spoke in a discussion on The 21st Century Engaged Public Research University, and was a convener of the 2009-10 Thinking Body, Moving Mind Collaborative.
