Research workshop by Alexandra Sexton: The food we eat

Research workshop by Alexandra Sexton

25th November 2015

Classroom 07 Hodgkin Building Guy’s Campus, King’s College London

10am – 4pm

Please note: Spaces are limited to 15. There is a £15 reimbursement for your participation and lunch will be provided.


What goes into the foods we eat, and why do we end up consuming the foods we do? As part of the FED UP season this one-day workshop invites participants to explore our perceptions of the foods we eat today, and discuss views on the cultural and political dynamics bound up in these products.

Alexandra Sexton is a 3rd year PhD Researcher in the Department of Geography at King’s College London. In an age of increasing climate change and food insecurity, Sexton’s research is interested in the political, social and economic motivations behind the modern food system and how these shape the products we choose to produce and consume. This workshop builds upon her research findings and will contribute towards her final thesis.

All are very welcome to apply and no prior background in the study of food is required. Please contact Alexandra Sexton ( ) if you are interested in taking part, or if you have any questions.
