Addressing food systems, we emphasize the role of ethnography in current discussions about the plantationocene, the legacy of plantations, the current circuits of migrant labor and capital-intensive monocrops, and potential future relationships between humans, non-humans, bodies and environment
In this panel, we welcome papers that address contemporary food-production systems, their human and non-human actors and the co-production of plants and people. We aim to address social, political, economic, historical, cultural and botanical aspects of food systems, including the role of ethnography in current discussions on the plantationocene and the legacy of plantations, current circuits of migrant labor and capital-intensive monocrops, and the relationships between humans and non-humans, bodies and environments. Papers may analyze and theorize the racialization of labor-people-plants, the embedded and embodied structures of social inequality, the transformed landscapes of the capitalocene, and the uprooted commons of the plantationocene. We also aim to highlight the hopeful endeavors of reparation through sustainable food production and contemporary forms of land distribution from communal land projects to alternative relationships with land, food and agricultural production.
