The end of globalisation? What food and politics tell us about the state of globalisation

Has globalisation run its course? The question can be approached from a variety of angles, and this event investigates the question in reference to food and politics. Food is yet another battle ground where regionalism, nationalism and globalism compete for supremacy, which is reflected to politics in a complex manner. Drawing from two recent publications on food and politics (Alex Colas, Jason Edwards, Jane Levi and Sami Zubaida (2018) Food, Politics and Society, University of California Press and Atsuko Ichijo, Ronald Ranta and Venetia Johannes (eds) (2019) The Emergence of National FoodBloomsbury, the panel discusses if globalisation has come to an end in reference to food and its politics. The panel will also considers the significance of Brexit in thinking about globalisation, food and politics.

This roundtable is part of the Centre for Research in Communities, Identities and Difference (CResCID) open symposia series that provides a platform for intellectual exchange and engagement across the academic community and with wider audiences.
