Workshop IV

November 24, 2020, 15h30-17h30 (GMT)

Online event


To think about food is to see the world outside the box. It involves questioning what food sovereignty(s) is, or are. It involves reflecting on the ways in which the circulation of food and recipes has had and keeps having an impact on the circulation of ideas and knowledges, the construction of borders and nationalisms. The experience of food, its preparation and consumption, is marked by emotions, experiences and knowledges that are often undervalued and subalternised, but which shape world views that challenge the notion of dominant knowledge and epistemology. It is necessary to think, rethink and unthink food, nutrition and diets in order to think, rethink and unthink history, politics, society, us and others. Such is the aim of this series of workshops.
