Synopsis

Indigeneity and Food: Politics, Transnationalism & Social Inclusion takes you on a journey to fulfil this metaphysical quest constantly oscillating between anxiety and bliss. The first part of the journe revisits the sources of our everyday food, starting with lush jungles yielding regenerative flora ans  wildlife, for which both its natural environment and gatekeepers are in dire need of protection. The transformational process of raw foodstuff in food manufacturing plants questions our socia representations of authenticity and indigeneity: a Japanese case study gives us some insightful answers to the conditioning process-in all meanings of the term-of indigenous ods. The journey continues with the great voyages of old, spanning from the classical era to Renaissance.
