Series: Earthscan Food and Agriculture
Agri-environmental governance has become a highly complex assemblage of actors and instruments, with multiple interrelations. This book addresses this complexity, challenging research both at the theoretical and methodological levels. It draws on multiple theoretical and methodological insights, drawing on case studies from Asia, Europe and the Americas and develops a renewed approach of AEG practices as assemblages.
A postdoc opportunity is available at the University of Helsinki in wine globalisation. It is early career people with interests in wine, and food and drink studies.

The website for Agri-food XXV: Celebrating 25 years of the Australasian Agri-food Research Network – Exploring past, present and future contributions to agri-food studies is now live.
Conference organisers will be posting updates on call for papers, the postgraduate workshop, field trip, conference dinner, accommodation/location, and registration costs on the website.
Participants are also advised to start thinking about booking their accommodation, as this will not be organised as part of the conference. Organisers suggest that West End or South Bank/South Brisbane are the best locations to stay, as many of the events will be held in West End, and it has good public transport access to St Lucia. Students might also wish to consider staying on campus at UQ; organisers will provide more information about this soon.
In keeping with the theme Agri-food XXV: Past, present & future, we invite proposals for paper sessions that fit within the following broad framework:
1. Sessions that return to popular themes from conferences past, to consider recent insights and/or new applications.
2. Sessions that address ongoing challenges for the future of food and agriculture, which might also include gaps in agri-food scholarship to date.
3. Sessions that engage with multidisciplinary agri-food research, show synergies between traditional and emerging agri-food disciplines, and build new approaches.
Sessions may take the form of paper presentations (15mins), interactive roundtables, or any other format not exceeding 1.5 hours duration.
Please submit your session proposal of up to 300 words including title, session organisers and contact details, outline of theme and proposed format to Kiah Smith by 31 May, 2018.
