Anna regularly speaks to classrooms through interactive Skype or webinar lectures and in person workshops. Appropriate audiences range from graduate students to middle school students, and everyone in between.
Examples of courses include:
Joan ClinganProfessor / Prescott College
I still hear from my students that Anna’s talk was the highlight of last fall. Her greatest skill is her capacity to build and restore hope.
Janet LansberryAssistant Director, Weissman Center for Leadership / Mount Holyoke College
Anna's recent lecture at Mount Holyoke College was riveting and deeply informative, backed by impressive research and stories of hope for the future. Her powerful message is bound to inspire individuals and communities to take concrete steps to create a more sustainable food system, a healthier population, and a flourishing planet.
Robert EmighAssociate Professor of English as a Second Language / Norwalk Community College
Anna’s event at Norwalk Community College was a huge success. Our forum was filled to capacity and Anna gave a superb talk. A number of students came up to me afterwards and told me how moving her talk had been. I have no doubt that these kinds of events can truly be transformative ones in their lives.
Richard L. Wallace, Ph.D.Associate Professor of Environmental Studies / Ursinus College
The students and faculty (including those who were in attendance at your talk, but who you may not have met) were thrilled about your work, your presentation, and your engagement with the campus community. From the many conversations I’ve had with my students over the past two days, I know that your perspectives have helped them to put a lot of the energy and passion they feel in sharper focus. I know this is what you do so well, but I wanted to let you know how effectively you reached us. Your deeply thoughtful, critical analytical approach complements our environmental studies pedagogy perfectly, and so I couldn’t be happier about the impact you have had on our students.
Jordana Halpern GeistChair, 7th Annual World On Your Plate
Anna Lappé invigorated participants at the 7th Annual World On Your Plate (Daemen College, Amherst, NY) with her challenge to reconsider the values and conversations we have around food and sustainability in this country. She engaged our audience with humor, facts and fascinating anecdotal experiences that brought us closer to issues we care about, as well as giving us real and practical ideas for how to make the world a safer and healthier place. We would gladly welcome her back to our annual food forum!
