Food connects us. This simple statement reveals how the food we consume, research, refuse to eat, or throw away structures our everyday local and global lives, This roundtable–comprised of academics, advocates, activists, organizers, and artists–will explore how food research moves across both disciplinary and institutional borders and takes up residence outside academic confines and discourses. This conversation will be an opportunity to explore how academic thinking can be translated through the study of food in such a way as to be useful outside of university structures.
