The overarching theme of the Food & Society 2019 international conference, namely “Indigeneity & Food” comes in many variations. We have captured some of these variations into four main sub-themes, which are divided into potential research topics. This list is of course not exhaustive, and delegates are free to submit other topics as long as it relates to the main theme of the conference.
