Short abstract:

The panel promotes the widening of the anthropological gaze on the circulations of food, food production and food consumption across spaces and places paying attention to its intersections with the circulations of people.

Long abstract:

A growing body of research deals with the processes of present-day food production and consumption, as well as with the implications of food practices in increasing diverse spheres of life. Yet, ongoing transformations deriving from safety laws and food regulations, social movements and economic experimentations involving production and consumption, as well as the diversification and intensification of migratory flows invite further mapping, and inter-relating, both of old and new articulations between food and the circulation of people, as well as on how they intersect with dominant notions of space, place and belonging, eventually altering/reviewing them. This panel seeks theoretical and empirical reflections on the analytical potentialities of integrated approaches in this field of studies, and exploring its aptitude to bring light to major problematic areas such as tension, change and resistance concerning contemporary foodways, food and human mobility. Inviting innovative contributions engaged with new perspectives and dimensions of analysis, the panel aims revisiting four major food topics through the lens of contemporary global circulations of people, practices and goods: -movement and food, domesticity and nourishment; -memories of food and food production: past spaces, places and relations; -appropriation, belonging and resistance through food; -food regulation and food circulation across the globe.
