This panel focuses on the gendered practices of participation, compliance and transgression to dominant politics, discourses and practices of food patrimonialization in uncertain times (COVID 19 pandemic and other disasters) in Europe and beyond.
While the heritage turn in ethnology has brought about an array of new analysis of food and foodways as a space of heritage-making (both top-down and grass-roots) the gender(ed) and intersectional dimensions of these phenomena have been neglected.
This panel focuses on the gendered practices of participation, compliance and transgression to dominant politics, discourses and practices of food patrimonialization in uncertain times (COVID 19 pandemic and other disasters).
The conceptual repertoire for studying the processes of food heritage-making proposed by Geyzen (2014) includes such elements as food and identity, food memory, nostalgia, tradition, grandmothers' cooking, terroir and geographical indication. We attempt to go far beyond grandmothers' cooking and broaden the Eurocentric models of food heritage studies by focusing on food patrimonialization in contexts marked by historically determined, deeply rooted socio-cultural disparities as well as (trans)national communities in Europe and beyond.
We especially welcome scholars who engage in the following topics:
· the making of neoliberal/gastronomic food heritage
· commodification and commercialization of food heritage
· (mis)representation of food heritage
· food heritage and tourism/hospitality
· heritage, food insecurity and social movements
· (im)mobile food heritage: intergenerational transmission of culinary knowledge
· appropriation of food knowledge: resistance or compliance
· emerging culinary elites
· food heritage as an opportunity for resistance and women's (self)empowerment
· community building and self-expression /representation
· the intersection of the private/communal/ public in food heritage making
· food heritage industry in uncertain times
· everyday food heritage in uncertain times
