Erik Chevrier

Part-Time Professor

My name is Erik Chevrier. I am an accomplished professor, researcher and social activist. I am a part-time professor at Concordia University and Dawson College. I am also pursuing a multidisciplinary PhD in Humanities via the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture at Concordia University.

I am interested in facilitating the development of a cooperative, socially responsible, environmentally sustainable, sovereign and secure food system at Concordia University. My research is focused on the student-run food groups at Concordia because these groups are challenging the dominant ideology of how food is produced, processed and distributed. Concordia students are pioneers of ‘alternative’ food practices; they provide concrete examples of how to develop healthy food systems. I am building an online archive (www.concordiafoodgroups.ca) to preserve the institutional memory of these groups and to highlight the activities of the people who are leading the food movement at Concordia.
