Extension for Abstracts: AGRI-FOOD XXVI

Conference organisers encourage the submission of abstracts for presentations that explore the imminent horizon of agri-food theory. How is our work being re-territorialised? How are relational economies addressing the continued transformation of global capital and financial networks? Or you may be grappling with the non-human… We welcome all submissions that provide insight to the continued work of the AFRN in helping to situate our growing understandings of agri-food systems.

Abstracts up of to 200 words are invited for papers or posters that fit within the special sessions listed here, or with the broader theme of Re-Territorialisation Unleashed. Please include paper title, presenter name/s and affiliation, as well as preferred session if applicable. Abstracts not aligned with one of the sessions will be combined within general sessions.
