Seminars are academically focused discussions on the food system and other important topics surrounding the work of the Community Food Centres.
Our next seminar will be held in our office (Corn Exchange building, Corn Street, BS1 1JQ) from 1-2pm on Tuesday 24th of April.
Lucy Jackman, PhD candidate will be talking about The Taste of Austerity.
Intimately tied to our identity, food holds an incredibly important role in our day-to-day lives and our relationships with others. How and what we consume may elicit a sensorial memory, say something about our political and cultural values, or act as an ‘affective building-block’ in home building in new places (Hage, 1997). But how might this change in a context of food insecurity? Does food become an elastic part of the household budget (Caplan, 2017)? Or does it become even more important? Reflecting on early findings from the field, this presentation draws on ethnographic material gathered from sites of consumption in East Bristol including foodbanks, community kitchens and women’s groups.
