Pre-departure information

New in Sweden

The present situation is compared to earlier periods of intense changes in the international/global division of agro-food labour, in particular to the period from the mid nineteenth century to the First World War. Cases where local resources are increasingly mobilized for production on global markets are explored. What happens with the access to basic livelihood in such a context? Food choices will be discussed in the junction between global structural forces that more or less heavily intervene and to a large extent determine access to basic livelihoods and historically and culturally formed ideas about nutrition, sustenance, health and taste.
