Event description

Description

"Taking conventions elsewhere: Consumption, quality and nature in industrial worlds of food"

David Evans will explore the widespread expectation that food ought to be ‘fresh’ and address the economic, cultural and environmental significance of conventions in relation to the organization of agro-food systems.


David Evans is a Professorial Research Fellow in Human Geography at the University of Sheffield and Honorary Senior Fellow of the Sustainable Consumption Institute at the University of Manchester. His research focuses on the geographies of consumption and material culture, responsibility and sustainability, and food. He is currently working on two projects funded by the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council. One of these explores the enactment of ‘freshness’ in food systems, the other addresses domestic practices and their link to the food-energy-water nexus.
