The Oxford Food Security Forum presents its 3rd Annual Conference, Sunday May 4th at St. Antony's College

Food Security Research: Critical Perspectives And Marginalized Issues

Date: Sunday May 4, 2014

Location: St Anthony's College, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

As with any field of study, Food Security research prioritizes topics that promise to yield useful and timely information, while sometimes excluding less pressing topics. However, a critical perspective may look to the field of Food Security as a discursive space in which the ways we define, frame and categorise knowledge constrains our perception of the field itself. With this possibility in mind, the Oxford Food Security Forum has arranged three panels to address the following questions:

  • How do dominant paradigms frame and constrain analysis of food security issues?
  • What boundaries have been applied to food security research, and might they exclude potentially fruitful sites of research?
  • How does the food security discourse contribute to relations of production and power?

We are please to welcome Lord Krebs and Bhavani Shankar as our keynote speakers.

The day's events will include a catered lunch from Vaults & Gardens, refreshments throughout the event, and a wine reception to follow.

Registration is required and there is a fee of 5 pounds. Please see the link below to our Eventbrite page:
