Discussion and planning session for the 2022/2023 season.
Hosted by Chelsea Rozanski.
The Food Studies Interdisciplinary Research Group welcomes members old and new to attend our fall welcome and planning meeting! The Food Studies Interdisciplinary Research Group of the Calgary Institute for the Humanities aims to build and foster a network of food studies scholars from the UCalgary community and beyond. Working across disciplines, we promote critical scholarship from the broad area of food studies, engaging with faculty and students from the many departments of UCalgary, as well as with food studies scholars, activists and community leaders outside the university.
Through our speaker and lecture series, 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. Our events draw participants from within and outside the university and just in the last year have dealt with topics such as the adoption of climate-mitigative farming practices by climate-skeptic farmers, building community-driven food networks within a capitalist economy and how agrarian extractivism in Latin America is impacted by food demand from China.
Together, our activities will further build and consolidate an interdisciplinary group of food scholars at UCalgary as well as increase the visibility of ongoing research efforts in the wider academic and non-academic community.
