Forking paths? Engaged research on food-political visions and changes in the Faroe Islands and in São Tomé and Príncipe

Project: Research


The aim of my PhD project is to support local food-political visions and initiatives in two small island countries (respectively São Tomé e Princípe and Faroe Islands) by engaging practically with small-scale food producers and food activists, while theoretically exploring connections between these very unique island societies and contextualising them in relation to global environmental challenges, political-economic dynamics, historical colonialism and contemporary food political discourses/agendas on food security and food sovereignty.

Supervisors: Dr. Giovanni Bettini (Lancaster University), Dr. Rebecca Whittle (Lancaster University and Dr. Ragnheiður Bogadóttir (University of the Faroe Islands)
