Increasingly, citizens perceive the global food system as part of the historical causes of the ecological crisis and the persisting hunger in the world. The growing politicization of the production, distribution and consumption relate to the fact that food relations are structured by economic, social, political, cultural and environmental inequalities. The seminar brings together diverse strands of theorization and research about social inequalities related to food under the conceptual umbrella of food inequalities. The concept incorporates: i) the multiple structural forces (socioeconomic, sociopolitical, socioecological, and cultural) producing hierarchical orderings in relations of food production, commercialization and consumption; ii) a multi-scalar and relational perspective, focusing on the interdependencies between phenomena at macro, meso and microlevels, from global historical trends to local negotiations, bridging urban and rural spatialities; iii) plural and intersectional inequalities, affecting social groups categorized across differences of class, race, gender, ethnicity and nationality; iv) dynamics of transformation, such as food movements and the role of feminism in food justice movements.
