Welcome back! We are pleased to announce that our group will be continuing for the 2023/24 academic year.  

Join us to discuss plans for our monthly meetings; meet our new co-convenor, Dr. Tatenda Mambo, and research assistant, Karla Oliveira; and connect with other group members over refreshments and snacks (provided).

Through our events, we hope to continue to expand the food studies network and develop interdisciplinary collaborations for research projects concerning the many facets of, and approaches to, food. We hold monthly group meetings covering a range of topics, aligned with the expertise and interests of participants, to gain better insights into the kind of food-related research currently conducted by members of the UCalgary community.
