Food and Mobility
A two-day interdisciplinary symposium hosted by the Centre for Mobilities Research, Department of Sociology at Lancaster University.
This symposium aims to address a number of themes arising from the issues of ‘mobility’ and ‘food.’ Bringing together researchers from a number of academic disciplines, this event aims to explore the mobility of food and consumption, but also the mobility of food studies across academic disciplinary boundaries. Food is produced and consumed through complex geographies of mobile people, plants, animals, and diseases that travel across global infrastructures of production, transportation, and preparation and become embedded in culinary cultures consisting of techniques, recipes, and styles of cooking and eating. The turn towards bodies, spatialities, networks, and materialities within the social sciences, science studies, cultural studies and gender studies suggests a number of new ways of posing the question of ‘mobility’ and ‘food.’
