Author Michael Carolan will be presenting the key arguments and engaging in debate and discussion about his latest Ashgate book, Embodied Food Politics, with a panel of distinguished critics at this year’s Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting in New York. The session runs from 8.00-9.40am on Tuesday 28th February with panellists Allison Hayes-Conroy, Jessica Hayes-Conroy, Josée Johnston, Emma Roe and Michael Woods.
Embodied Food Politics, part of the Ashgate Critical Food Studies series edited by Michael Goodman, examines the materializations of food politics; our embodied, sensuous, and physical connectivities to food production and consumption:
‘Carolan brilliantly demonstrates that bodies tuned to Global Food can, through shared practice in new spaces such as urban chickens, seed exchanges, and community supported agriculture, create tacit knowledge for innovation in food systems that more closely link production with consumption. He supports his reflexive deep descriptive case studies by a wide-ranging and well-chosen literature that he both critiques and takes to the next level.’ Cornelia Butler Flora, Iowa State University, USA
