Abstract

From February to June 2016, the Food Research Collaboration (FRC) and the IFSTAL team from the Centre for Food Policy worked with the Gender and Sexualities Research Forum at City University London to co-organise a series of five seminars on Ecofeminism, Food and Social Justice. Food, as FRC members know, is a multidisciplinary subject and touches on many topics. Gender and the environment are two of these, but the links are often ignored. In this series, activists and academic speakers came together to discuss how interconnections of gender issues, sustainability and the food system are interwoven in their research and campaigns. To our knowledge, this was the first seminar series exploring the links between food and ecofeminism and we hope that the very interesting discussions and debates started during these meetings will continue.
