Agrifood Research Network Conference 6-9 December 2015, Queenstown, New Zealand

The University of Otago is delighted to host the annual conference of the AFRN in Queenstown from December 6-9, 2015. The Agri-Food Research Network (AFRN) has been meeting annually in Australasia since 1993. It represents a group of scholars, students and activists who are interested in critical political and theoretical issues in agri-food systems.

Hosted by the departments of Geography, Food Science, Sociology, Gender and Social Work and the Centre for Sustainability (CSAFE), the organising committee invites you to come to Queenstown for Agrifood XXII. This is the first time the conference has been held in Queenstown, and this will give conference goers the opportunity to see multiple strands of indigenous, imperial, industrial and globalized food systems in action.
