Global food regimes and China
28 April, 2021 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
This second Agrarian Conversations webinar will discuss China’s relationship to food regime transitioning.
- What relationship does China have to current food regime transitioning, with the changing geographies of production, circulation and consumption of global food commodities, and the growing significance of agroecological farming?
- Does China’s deepening international presence portend a new form of food regime hegemony? And what might that look like?
- If it does, what are the implications of such changing dynamics for local, national, and international political struggles for a fairer and kinder agro-food system?
