Food and Heritage

Learning Event: Food and Heritage (University of Leeds, UK 10 January 2020)


In collaboration with Dr Tahrat Shahid, Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Challenge Leader for Food Systems at UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), this 1-day workshop aims to ask critical questions about how Arts and Humanities Research Council-Global Challenges Research Fund (AHRC-GCRF) multi-disciplinary collaborations navigate the balance between the local and the global. The arts and humanities offer approaches to global development that attend to local context, unlocking and mobilizing local knowledge as a way of addressing development challenges. How can arts and humanities research projects attend to this crucial context, while also addressing the need to scale up learning so that it can inform development work more broadly?

Keynote speakers include: Professor Naomi Sykes (The Lawrence Professor of Archaeology at the University of Exeter), Professor Henrice Altink (Professor in Modern History and Co-Director of the Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre at the University of York), Dr Sandip Hazareesingh (Director of the Ferguson Centre for African and Asian Studies at the Open University) and Dr Theano Moussouri (Senior Lecturer in Museum Studies at University College London).
