    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    The chapter on food offers an innovative approach to not only the topic of food but also the act of writing itself. Initially written as a collective blog by Ian Cook and ten other food scholars, it examines emerging cultural geographies of food. Taking inspiration from recent reflections on cultural geography's past and future, the chapter develops a series of arguments and the texture, creativity, and activism embedded in geographies of food. In doing so, the authors highlight what cultural geography can bring to geographic research on food, as well as how geographers can join ongoing activisms associated with the politics of food across space and scales.
