    I will never eat another strawberry again: the biopolitics of consumer-citizenship in the fight against methyl iodide in California.Julie Guthman & Sandy Brown - 2016 - Agriculture and Human Values 33 (3):575-585.
    In March of 2012, following a robust activist campaign, Arysta LifeScience withdrew the soil fumigant methyl iodide from the US market, just a little over a year after it had finally been registered for use in California. As a major part of the campaign against registration of the chemical, over 53,000 people, ostensibly acting as citizens rather than consumers, wrote public comments contesting the use of the chemical for its high toxicity. Although these comments had marginal impact on the outcome (...)

    Fixing food with a limited menu: on (digital) solutionism in the agri-food tech sector.Julie Guthman & Michaelanne Butler - 2023 - Agriculture and Human Values 40 (3):835-848.
    Silicon Valley and its innovation center counterparts have come upon food and agriculture as the next frontier for their unique style of innovation and impact. But what exactly can the tech sector, with expertise in information and communication technologies, bring to a domain in which the biophysical materiality of soil, plants, animals and human bodies have most challenged farmers and food companies? Based on a detailed analysis of all of the companies that have pitched their products at events sponsored by (...)

    Cultivating intellectual community in academia: reflections from the Science and Technology Studies Food and Agriculture Network (STSFAN).Karly Burch, Mascha Gugganig, Julie Guthman, Emily Reisman, Matt Comi, Samara Brock, Barkha Kagliwal, Susanne Freidberg, Patrick Baur, Cornelius Heimstädt, Sarah Ruth Sippel, Kelsey Speakman, Sarah Marquis, Lucía Argüelles, Charlotte Biltekoff, Garrett Broad, Kelly Bronson, Hilary Faxon, Xaq Frohlich, Ritwick Ghosh, Saul Halfon, Katharine Legun & Sarah J. Martin - 2023 - Agriculture and Human Values 40 (3):951-959.
    Scholarship flourishes in inclusive environments where open deliberations and generative feedback expand both individual and collective thinking. Many researchers, however, have limited access to such settings, and most conventional academic conferences fall short of promises to provide them. We have written this Field Report to share our methods for cultivating a vibrant intellectual community within the Science and Technology Studies Food and Agriculture Network (STSFAN). This is paired with insights from 21 network members on aspects that have allowed STSFAN to (...)

    Social science – STEM collaborations in agriculture, food and beyond: an STSFAN manifesto.Karly Burch, Julie Guthman, Mascha Gugganig, Kelly Bronson, Matt Comi, Katharine Legun, Charlotte Biltekoff, Garrett Broad, Samara Brock, Susanne Freidberg, Patrick Baur & Diana Mincyte - 2023 - Agriculture and Human Values 40 (3):939-949.
    Interdisciplinary research needs innovation. As an action-oriented intervention, this Manifesto begins from the authors’ experiences as social scientists working within interdisciplinary science and technology collaborations in agriculture and food. We draw from these experiences to: 1) explain what social scientists contribute to interdisciplinary agri-food tech collaborations; (2) describe barriers to substantive and meaningful collaboration; and (3) propose ways to overcome these barriers. We encourage funding bodies to develop mechanisms that ensure funded projects respect the integrity of social science expertise and (...)

    Whose Life Counts: Biopolitics and the “Bright Line” of Chloropicrin Mitigation in California’s Strawberry Industry.Sandy Brown & Julie Guthman - 2016 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 41 (3):461-482.
    In the context of the mandated phaseout of methyl bromide, California’s strawberry industry has increased its use of chloropicrin, another soil fumigant that has long been on the market. However, due to its 2010 designation as a toxic air contaminant, the US Environmental Protection Agency and California’s Department of Pesticide Regulation have developed enhanced application protocols to mitigate exposures of the chemical to bystanders, nearby residents, and farmworkers. The central feature of these mitigation technologies are enhanced buffer zones between treated (...)

    From “old school” to “farm-to-school”: Neoliberalization from the ground up. [REVIEW]Patricia Allen & Julie Guthman - 2006 - Agriculture and Human Values 23 (4):401-415.
    Farm-to-school (FTS) programs have garnered the attentions and energies of people in a diverse array of social locations in the food system and are serving as a sort of touchstone for many in the alternative agrifood movement. Yet, unlike other alternative agrifood initiatives, FTS programs intersect directly with the long-established institution of the welfare state, including its vestiges of New Deal farm programs and public entitlement. This paper explores how FTS is navigating the liminal terrain of public and private initiative, (...)

    Contested agri-food futures: Introduction to the Special Issue.Mascha Gugganig, Karly Ann Burch, Julie Guthman & Kelly Bronson - 2023 - Agriculture and Human Values 40 (3):787-798.
    Over recent decades, influential agri-food tech actors, institutions, policymakers and others have fostered dominant techno-optimistic, future visions of food and agriculture that are having profound material impacts in present agri-food worlds. Analyzing such realities has become paramount for scholars working across the fields of science and technology studies (STS) and critical agri-food studies, many of whom contribute to STSFAN—the Science and Technology Studies Food and Agriculture Network. This article introduces a Special Issue featuring the scholarship of STSFAN members, which cover (...)

    Raising organic: An agro-ecological assessment of grower practices in California. [REVIEW]Julie Guthman - 2000 - Agriculture and Human Values 17 (3):257-266.
    As the organic food sector has grownand changed to become more mainstream, large-scaleconventional growers have entered into organicproduction. While it is increasingly clear that notall organic farms are self-sufficient small scaleunits that practice poly-cultural agronomy and sell inlocal marketing venues, there still exists apresumption that there are clear lines between thesmall scale ``movement'' farmers who followagro-ecological agronomic ideals and the relativelylarger and partly conventional newcomers who do not.This paper addresses a specific empirical issue, whichis the extent to which California organic (...)
