Annonce

Argument

The literature on local foods has been consolidated through a wealth of studies that appeared in recent years (Fonte and Papadopoulos, 2010; Kneafsey et al, 2008 among many others). Have we reached a cul-de-sac in what local food studies concern? What new contributions can local food studies bring forward for a better understanding of the challenges of a new rural world?

This session aims at exploring fresh ways of conceptually and empirically examining local foods by privileging attention to the following aspects: historical biographies of local foods and its cycles of commodification and decommodification; future challenges of constructing and valuing local foods in a scenario post-CAP 2013, exposed to increasing resource scarcity (water, land, biodiversity loss) and an emergent geopolitical global food governance; power and knowledge spillover dynamics in the construction of local foodscapes; consumers‘ and producers‘ creative, aesthetic, visceral, ethic, political and social engagements with local foods.
