Reminder: Call for papers, Agrifood XXIII

The Centre for Global Food and Resources (GFAR) at the University of Adelaide is
delighted to jointly host the XXIII annual conference of the Agri-food Research Network(AFRN) and a gathering of the Australian Agricultural Resource Economics Society(AARES) in Adelaide from December 7-10, 2016. The 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. AARES is an independent association of persons and organisations interested in agricultural,resource and environmental economics.

The organising committee invites you to join us in Adelaide for Agrifood XXIII. South Australia has much to offer in diverse and innovative food systems that abound in the driest state on the driest continent. From ancient but new bush foods, to wines of world renown and premium produce made locally and exported globally, there is much to explore across our conference themes.

The conference organisers have invited keynote speakers to speak across the proposed themes. We invite you to submit papers and/or session proposals that form part of the discussion around these four conference themes, or to engage with other compelling areas of current agrifood scholarship.

Please submit abstracts (200 words max) by August 1, 2016 to organisers via email. Please also contact the organisers if you are interested in organising a special session.
