Workshop organised by AHRC Large Grant Rethinking the Senses: Uniting the Neuroscience and Philosophy of Perception.
At this interdisciplinary workshop researchers and practitioners will share diverse expertise relevant to what is at stake when people gather to eat. A tremendously rich set of factors converge in meals, affecting the meaning, pleasures and healthiness of daily life, the transmission and vitality of cultures, and the sustainability and fairness of large-scale food policies and practices. This workshop aims to integrate our understanding of these factors, with the hope of developing ideas for a ‘future of meals’ that is well-informed, is ethical and makes the most of meals’ experiential, creative and cultural potential.
The full programme for this event is available on the Rethinking the Senses website.
