Call for Papers: American Association of Geographers (AAG) Annual Meeting | Feb 21-25, NYC or online
Paper Session: Cultivating Food Justice II: New Directions in Food Justice Research
Organizers: Alison Hope Alkon (University of the Pacific) and Julian Agyeman (Tufts University)
Session Description: We are excited to begin working on a second edition of our co-edited book Cultivating Food Justice. Rather than merely update the introduction, we are looking to create a new volume that can capture the myriad ways that food justice activism and scholarship is flourishing.
Early academic texts, ours included, described food justice as working to increase access to healthy and sustainably produced food in low-income communities and communities of color, and to addressing issues of discrimination against farmers of color. This session will investigate the ways that critical food justice research and activism have shifted and expanded, creating a new and more capacious field that is attuned to a variety of intersecting inequalities and the social and spatial processes that create them. Papers might address (and, we hope, can move beyond) the following themes and questions:
How have/can Black food geographies, Latinx food geographies and Indigenous/decolonial approaches shape food justice research and activism?
How can food justice better engage with feminist and queer theories, practices and ecologies?
How can we better understand and work from the intersections of food justice with workers rights, the Movement for Black Lives, prison abolition and other social movements?
How has/can the food justice movement engage in policy work beyond local food policy councils?
What role has/can food justice play in progressive national platforms such as the Green New Deal and the Movement for Black Lives?
How has/can the food justice movement engage with multiple forms of food activism and food production in Black, indigenous and immigrant communities?
How has/can food justice affected the emergency food system and how can critiques of and efforts to transform emergency food contribute to a broader notion of food justice?
What is the relationship between food justice and culinary justice? What role do/can chefs and restauranteurs play in the food justice movement?
How can recent research documenting the food practices of low-income people inform an expanded notion of food justice?
How might food justice exist beyond and help to span the binaries that dominate our understandings of good/bad, fast/slow, healthy/unhealthy food?
How have/can food justice shape urban and rural landscapes, communities, and the intersections between them?
How have scholar/activists and partnerships shaped both theory and praxis?
How can food justice research and activism offer new methodological advancements including critical mapping, food-based ethnographies and activist-scholarship?
