Welcome to the Food Geographies Working Group (FGWG)!
The FGWG brings together geographers who study all aspects of food, from across the breadth of geography’s sub-disciplines, and to raise the profile of geography as a key voice in food related research, policy, knowledge and action.
More specifically the Food Geographies Working Group will:
- stimulate and develop a critical debate about food within and beyond geography
- provide an intellectual home for the wide range of food-related research being conducted by geographers
- encourage the study of geographies of food across the sub-disciplines of geography (including but not restricted to social, cultural, physical, historical, and economic geography) through, for example, offering a prize for the best undergraduate dissertation relating to food matters
- foster dialogue and engagement and promote collaboration between geographers, policy makers, activists and other relevant stakeholders interested in the geographies of food through the organisation of events
- support research and teaching related to the geographies of food through initiating publications, maintaining the web and social media presence and through the organisation and sponsorship of conference sessions
