Valuing practices: food cases from the Netherlands

Tuesday, 1 December 2015 at 5:30pm - CAST D
I will stipulate various dimensions relevant to the study of valuing as an activity embedded in socio-material practices. In doing so, I will mobilise fieldwork done in the Netherlands. The values that I will come to talk about include healthy, safe, organic, efficient, fair, traditional and tasty.  I seek to lay out some of the possibilities for and pitfalls of valuations studies, while wondering what ‘being normative’ might entail.
