Food & Society International Conference 2016
The first Food and Society International Conference, inter-disciplinary in nature, wishes to focus on two main themes: “Politics of Food” and “Food and Wellness”.
The objective of this international conference is to gather minds from many fields of studies in order to epistemologically and empirically investigate the dialectics of food and society. The sense of self, roles, claims and predicaments of individual and social groups within the common society are often the result of tensions between imagined communities and assigned identities. One way to measure the impact of globalization force and its counter-currents is to contextually study individual plural-eaters in their social environment.
By gradually adjusting the observation lens at meso and macro levels, researchers might be able to make sense of the complex system of socio-economic relations in which food is at the same time both main commodity and cultural marker. At the end of the conference, delegates will be requested to reach a consensus about a firm resolution to take for 2017, relating to either better ‘eating’, ‘consuming’ or improved ‘well being’. Impact of this resolution will be measured through 2017 and findings shall be presented at the next conference.
