Abstract zum Vortrag:

Since the early 2000s 'lopsided' geographies of knowledge production and context-dependent hierarchies of knowledge claims have been subject to growing critique. The talk seeks to make sense of the invisibility, to Western academia, of alternative food provisioning practices in non-Western contexts as a reserch topic with the potential to inform food scholarship´s general theorisations. Looking at how food re-localisation practices in the periphery have been read from the West is instructive for the understanding of how certain knowledge 'travels' and becomes a universally accepted knowledge - or theory - or remains a partial knowledge with the validity resricted to particular places and circulating within specific academic subfields.
