Seminar Series 2012

We invite you to join a seminar series on The Politics and Practices of Food Governance organised by OFG and hosted at Green Templeton College, University of Oxford, in October and November 2012 to explore the contemporary politics of food production, marketing and consumption.

OFG Seminar Series Programme

OFG seminar programme 2012

The series will examine the multiple ways in which food is governed today and its implications for health, the environment and business. The series will pay particular attention to the role that non- governmental actors and citizen-consumers play in contemporary forms of local and global food governance (Lezaun and Schneider 2012). Based on seven invited talks, the series will address the question of whether food consumption can be considered an ‘invisible’ form of public and political engagement (Lien and Nerlich, 2004; Blue, 2010)  and asks what the potential limits of such an engagement are.

The  OFG  seminar  series  will  provide scope  for  interdisciplinary  engagement  with  research  communities  interested  in  food governance,  within  and  beyond  Oxford.  The  seminar  series  will  serve  as  a  seedbed  for  the development  of  a  new  network  for  information  exchange  and  collaboration,  ensuring  the inclusion  of multidisciplinary voices in the project’s network of stakeholders.
