Imagining Radical Futures of Food: Perspectives from the four fields


agriculture and agrarian systems

food and nutrition

engaged anthropology

Studying food has long been a way for anthropologists across subfields to gain insight into labor organization, daily life, and identities. More recent studies of food have focused on inequalities in food systems as well as on movements • such as those towards food justice and food sovereignty • that seek to build equitable food systems. These movements are often radical in how they work towards subverting capitalist and colonial forms of labor and economic organization. Through studies of food systems both past and present, anthropology is well-positioned to imagine and support the creation of radical food futures. We see our discipline’s potential contribution to such movements in three ways: understanding the structures that create the current food system, reimagining a more equitable system, and contributing to the construction of that new system. This roundtable brings together anthropologists from across subfields whose work has contributed to one or more of these areas. Topics discussed will include why anthropology is relevant to food movements, how to effectively and ethically make research impactful, and how anthropology can help build more equitable food futures.
