What goes into the foods we eat, and why do we end up consuming the foods we do? As part of the FED UP season this one-day workshop invited participants to explore our perceptions of the foods we eat today, and discuss views on the cultural and political dynamics bound up in these products.
Alexandra Sexton is a 3rd year PhD Researcher in the Department of Geography at King’s College London. In an age of increasing climate change and food insecurity, Sexton’s research is interested in the political, social and economic motivations behind the modern food system and how these shape the products we choose to produce and consume. This workshop builds upon her research findings and will contribute towards her final thesis.
