Scholars who have joined ANISE are all involved in research relating to food and eating in their home disciplines, ranging from food production and transportation, to food consumption and food wastage. We talk about food in our own languages and express the value of food in pounds and kilos, CO2’s, nutrients, food miles, identity etcetera. We share the idea that working together in multidisciplinary teams adds value to a scholarly understanding of how food works. We all offer our particular knowledge, and seek to connect our insights with the insights of other researchers who take different perspectives. By so doing, we innovate research on the broad variety of human practices relating to foodstuffs and meals.
What we do
ANISE brings together scholars from fields such as health science, economics, history, sociology, anthropology, theology, geography, food sciences, ethics and logistics. In ANISE-meetings we prepare research projects, research proposals and funding applications. Being part of a network helps us to share information on opportunities for current and new food-related research, and to broaden our own professional networks. In various event organized by ANISE, such as seminars, expert meetings and Winter Schools, the exchange with other scholars broadens our horizons.
