Everyday Objects of Food Security

Objects, one of our key programmes in collaboration with the Centre for Global Knowledge Studies at the University of Cambridge, has begun releasing a series of videos titled 'Everyday Objects of Food Security'. These videos detail conversations by small groups of researchers from the natural, physical, and social sciences, and the humanities, with each group discussing specific objects that relate to global food security.

Objects, our transdisciplinary project in collaboration with gloknos, has begun releasing 11 short films on 'Everyday Objects of Food Security'. As of the 19th of March, the first two films have been released and can be found on this channel. Do feel free to subscribe to the channel so that you can receive notifications when new videos are loaded, and please help us to spread our food security message by disseminating them to your community. This series of films were completed with the assistance of funding from the Isaac Newton Trust, the European Research Council and TIGR2ESS. A related event, 'Meat and Potatoes: Changing diets for changing times?', was held in collaboration with EIT Food, who also provided additional funding for the event.

The project was originally conceptualised by Ms Jacqueline Garget, previous Programme Manager of Cambridge Global Food Security IRC, and Dr Inanna Hamati-Ataya, Principal Research Associate at CRASSH and Founding Director of gloknos, as a joint collaboration between the IRC and gloknos. Dr Hamati-Ataya currently leads this project as Principal Investigator.
