Please join the Department of History as we welcome Professor Bart Elmore, who will be speaking about his recent book, Seed Money: Monsanto’s Past and Our Food Future

For the better part of a decade, environmental historian Bart Elmore investigated the history of Monsanto, the chemical firm turned agricultural giant that became the largest seller of genetically engineered seeds in the world. Now owned by Bayer after a mega merger in 2018, Monsanto’s past still shapes our food future. Come learn what the history of this firm can teach us about better paths to a more sustainable food system in the years ahead.
