“Eating mince pies in the name of research”

newtownfooddrinkfestivalFor some interesting insights into local food research here at Aber and in Wales more generally, please visit the Global-Rural research blog titled “Assembling Newtown” maintained by the WJ Edwards Research Center. The blog is part of an exciting five-year research project (Feb 2014 – Jan 2019) funded by the European Research Council. The project is internativeg-piconal in scope and will draw on field

research in a range of different countries. The first part focuses on practices and experiences of everyday globalization in a rural small town through an in-depth study of Newtown in mid Wales. This episode highlights Newtown’s recently held food & drink festival and focuses on the globalisation of the industrialised food system and the place of ‘local’ food within that. You can find the blog here.
