Following ESRC-funded ‘Future of our Food’ seminar series for which FRC was a partner, we are now sharing a call for papers for a Special Issue of “Organisation” on “Fruits of Our Labour: Work and Organisation in the Global Food System” by 30 June 2018.
The Special Issue Guest Editors are: Böhm, University of Exeter UK; Tim Lang, City University, London UK; and Marja Spierenburg, Radboud University, Netherlands.
In this special issue, authors are invited to engage theoretically and empirically with the organisation of capital, work and labour in the global agri-food system. More specifically, authors are asked to explore how work and labour in the agri-food system have been shaped by the political economy of food and agriculture and how these issues relate to other pertinent challenges, including climate change, the obesity epidemic, ongoing hunger, food poverty and land grabbing. Finally, we are also interested in new forms of work and labour that resist dominant political economies of the agri0food system, showing pathways towards more sustainable, equitable and just features.
Contributions from researchers, activists, artists and professionals are invited on the following topics, though this list is by no means exhaustive:
