About the Food Justice Network

The Food Justice Network is a group of researchers from a range of disciplines interested in, and working on, issues to do with social and environmental justice and sustainability within food systems. It began as an informal network of colleagues at the University of Bristol, alongside researchers who live in Bristol. Initial meetings were held in a social context sharing conversations over shared food. The group is now evolving to support more researchers and to build up regular exchanges and group learning in this area. For now, the main activity will be a series of hour-long seminars (webinars whilst Covid restrictions persist) on a regular basis. Where restrictions permit, there may be a possibility to meet for a drink afterwards (currently via zoom). In time, we may expand into broader activities in addition to the seminars. The aim is to provide a supportive space to connect, share work and ideas, researcher-to-researcher.
