Dear RC40 members, Please find below information from our network about an online event on Food System Governance! Online event Join this webinar and interactive conversation to learn about how civil society organizations in Canada, the United States, and Australia are working collaboratively to influence food system policy change and decision making. Civil society organizations are integral to food system governance. Food systems governance is not limited to laws and regulations developed by government. It also includes practices, actions, and advocacy by a wide range of actors to create policies and change decision making structures. The webinar will include a dialogue between civil society representatives and researchers from Canada, the US and Australia, exploring the role of civil society organizations in food system governance. We will unpack the motivations, opportunities, challenges, and lessons learnt from collaborative forms of food system governance. We will also reflect on lessons learnt from the various models of collaborative food system governance, such as food policy councils and networks, across the three countries. Recent research will set the stage for representatives from each country to share their experiences of engaging in food system governance. Discussions emerging from the webinar will contribute to future comparative research on the role of civil society organizations in food systems governance in the US, Australia, and Canada. A second event later in June will focus on the issues of equity and inclusion in food system governance, as well as Indigenous-settler relations. Please indicate your interest in this second event when you register. This event is supported by funding from The Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada and Mitacs.

(April – June 2022) The Research Committee on Sociology of Agriculture and Food (RC40) (https://www.isaagrifood.com/) of the International Sociological Association (ISA) invites early-career researchers from the Middle East, North Africa, and the Arab World (or whose studies focus on this region) for an online workshop aiming to produce high-quality articles for publication in international agri-food journals. The aim of this workshop is to support early-career agri-food researchers in moving their papers for successful publication in international journals. The objective is to provide feedback on the works-in progress (i.e., constructive feedback on draft papers), and advise the authors on some strategies to adopt for publishing. This is NOT a traditional research seminar with a presentations/questions structure. Rather, participants will submit their papers, and receive individually written comments on them before the workshop by advisors and peers. During the workshop, the conversation will cover specific issues/problems/difficulties raised by the paper, and will discuss in more depth topics regarding journals selections, and steps to finalizing the paper for submission. The workshop will follow 5 steps: First, we will receive the applications: short bio (up to 200 words), a CV (including published work), and abstract (up to 400 words) of a paper proposition focusing on contemporary agri-food issues: Deadline April 25th, 2022 Then, the project team will select 6-8 papers to be carefully revised and commented by specialists (advisors) in the field. Notification of acceptance by April 28th, 2022 The authors of the selected abstracts will prepare and send draft versions of their paper (in English) (6,000 – 9,000 words) to be commented by the advisors. Deadline June 1st, 2022 Authors will be organized in groups of 3, and will need to comment on the papers from their group members. Authors will also receive written comments from advisors. Deadline for comments is June 8th, 2022 An online workshop will take place with all early-careers and advisors on June 10th 2022 Finally, participants will prepare the final versions (in English) of their articles for submitting to an international agri-food journal. Participants (those who present paper drafts): We welcome applications from RC40 members and people interested in learning more about this interdisciplinary, international, inclusive network. Early-career agri-food researchers: PhD candidates or researchers within five years since achieving PhD Priority will be given to those who have not yet managed to publish a paper in high-impact international journals. Priority will be given to non-native English language researchers and researchers from the region. Participants are pre-registered and disclose their identity. Abstracts and draft versions of the papers can be submitted in English. Workshop organisers: Hilde Bjørkhaug is Professor in sociology within the area of sociological theory. She has her specialization in sociology of agriculture and food. She has through her career been involved in research on different aspects of rural development, diffusion of innovations, agricultural restructuring and financialization, land use and land use conflicts, ethics, sustainable development, climate change challenges, policy analysis, food systems analysis, power relations and organizational change. Gender perspectives have been employed in many projects. She has followed Norwegian legislation on gender balance in boardrooms through research projects and public debate. She holds a particular interest in advancing sociological theory and methods. Cynthia Gharios is a PhD candidate at the Graduate School Global and Area Studies at the University of Leipzig. Her research interests revolve around the topics of food, agriculture, and the global food system. She is particularly interested in political ecology and cultural geography, with an emphasis on the financialization of agriculture, land grabs and foreign direct investment, technology and smart farming, and the imaginary of agrarian future(s) in the MENA region. Her current research examines the UAE’s food system and addresses the changing practices and visions used to tackle food security at a national level, and the key role of technology and innovation in it. She has previously worked on agrarian transformation in Lebanon, and was involved in projects on agricultural war damage in Yemen, and on agricultural investments in Morocco. Commentators/advisors: Max Ajl is an associated researcher with the Tunisian Observatory for Food Sovereignty and the Environment and a postdoctoral fellow with the Rural Sociology Group at Wageningen University. He has written for Monthly Review, Jacobin and Viewpoint. He has contributed to a number of journals, including the Journal of Peasant Studies, Review of African Political Economy and Globalizations, and is an associate editor at Agrarian South & Journal of Labor and Society. Atakan Büke is a Philipp Schwartz Initiative Fellow at the Research Center Global Dynamics at Leipzig University. Informed by critical agrifood studies, he works especially on the contemporary agrarian/peasant question, food regime analysis, and the emerging alternative socio-ecological agrifood movements. He has participated in various research projects focusing on different aspects of agrifood relations in Turkey, ranging from the analysis of neoliberal restructuring processes in terms of small-scale agricultural producers to Istanbul’s food provision systems under the conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, he is working on his book tentatively titled The Agrarian/Peasant Question in the 21st Century: Rethinking Capitalism as a Food Regime, which is expected to be published in 2023 as part of Brill’s New Scholarship in Political Economy Series. Schedule: April 25th: deadline for application (Abstracts, CVs and Bios) April 28th: notification of acceptance June 1st: deadline for the draft papers (participants submit full-paper-draft); June 8th: All the participants and senior scholar commentators review the drafts and send written comments to authors.

Early decision abstract deadline is at November 5, 2021. More information below: ------- Please consider submitting an abstract and forward to others who might be interested ***REMINDER: EARLY DECISION ABSTRACT DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 5*** Hi All -- A quick reminder that the Early Decision deadline for abstract review is approaching. Abstracts submitted by Nov 5 will receive an early review with decisions announced in December. (Submissions for the Virtual track will be accepted beginning November 6. Information is forthcoming. Regular decision deadline for both in-person and virtual tracks is January 5, 2022.) Looking forward to seeing you in Athens, GA! 2022 AFHVS/ASFS Cultivating Connections: Exploring Entry Points Into Sustainable Food Systems Athens, Georgia May 18 – 21, 2022 https://cultivatingconnections2022.uga.edu/ The University of Georgia’s Sustainable Food Systems Initiative is pleased to host the 2022 joint annual meeting of the Agriculture, Food, and Human Values Society (AFHVS) and the Association for the Study of Food and Society (ASFS). The Abstract Submission Portal is now open. We invite the submission of abstracts for organized paper sessions, individual papers, lightning talks, roundtables, posters and exploration galleries, and working sessions. The 2022 conference theme, “Cultivating Connections: Exploring Entry Points Into Sustainable Food Systems,” is an invitation to envision a more sustainable and equitable future by critically engaging with the histories and legacies that have framed agricultural food landscapes over time. Cultivating connections means that we are active participants, called to dig in for the preparation of building fruitful relationships with one another to foster greater sustainability within the food system. The food system is an intricate web of social connections, with each node of the web shaping how food is regarded, how it’s grown, how it will be distributed, who will buy it, and what its overall significance is within communities. These elements provide entry points for conversation, reconciliation, and action toward building stronger, more sustainable connections within the food system. Participants are invited to engage in conversations about changes to the current agri-food paradigm to better represent and advocate for a more just and equitable food system - from farm to fork - that strengthens community viability, food security, and the sovereignty of all people. We welcome submission for the following categories: · Paper presentation: A standard 15-20 minute academic presentation · Lightning Talk: A 3-5 minute presentation · Poster: Share a research poster that describes a research project or program · Exploration gallery: Interact with attendees at a table where you can share products or other materials. This is in a shared space with poster presentations and NOT intended for marketing or business purposes. · Panel: A conversation with a select group of panelists that can also include Q&A · Roundtable/working session: Use a conference room for an informal conversation on a project or topic. · Paper session: Organize a group of papers. Note that you will need the submission numbers of your presenters prior to your submission. Submitting authors will receive a six digit submission number after completing the form. Please store this number and refer to it in any correspondence related to your submission. Accepted abstracts will be grouped in the following categories: · Race, Gender, and Equity · Food, Health, and Nutrition · Role of Higher Education · Community Development and Engagement · Farming and Production Systems · Agricultural Economics · Consumer Perceptions, Behavior, and Marketing ---- Abstracts can be submitted at https://ugeorgia.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9NdudLOudxiSUzs Abstract submissions are due by November 5, 2021 for early review. Authors will be notified of acceptance by early December 2021. Standard abstract submissions are due by January 5, 2022. Authors will be notified of acceptance by early March 2022. ---- Virtual Track We are anticipating offering a parallel virtual track during the conference (online presentations and online participation). This track will be limited in the number of presentations that it can accommodate and it may also be limited in the format of presentations (possibly only workshops and lightning talks). While we recognize that this is not the same as a fully hybrid conference, we believe that it will help us to move in the direction of greater sustainability and inclusion. Abstract submissions for the virtual component of the conference will be accepted beginning November 6 on this portal; the submission deadline is January 5. Further details about the virtual track will be made available later this fall. Virtual Track abstract submissions will open up on November 6, 2021 and close January 5, 2022. Authors will be notified of acceptance by early March 2022. ---- **PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL BE NO SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENSIONS** All presenters must be registered for the conference by April 15, 2022 to be included in the conference program. Questions can be directed to cultivatingconnections2022@gmail.com ---- About the Societies: The Agriculture, Food, & Human Values Society (AFHVS) is a professional organization which provides an international forum to engage in the cross-disciplinary study of food, agriculture, and health, as well as an opportunity for examining the values that underlie various visions of food and agricultural systems. From a base of philosophers, sociologists, and anthropologists, AFHVS has grown to include scientists, scholars, and practitioners in areas ranging from agricultural production and social science to nutrition policy and the humanities. AFHVS encourages participation by the growing community of researchers and professionals exploring alternative visions of the food system from numerous perspectives and approaches, including local and regional food systems; alternative food movements; agricultural and food policies, agricultural sustainability, food justice, issues of local and global food security, and food sovereignty. The organization publishes the journal Agriculture and Human Values. The Association for the Study of Food and Society (ASFS) was founded in 1985, with the goals of promoting the interdisciplinary study of food and society. It has continued that mission by holding annual meetings and working with Routledge Publishing, the organization produces the quarterly journal, Food, Culture and Society. Members explore the complex relationships among food, culture, and society from numerous disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, as well as in the world of food beyond the academy. ASFS encourages vigorous debate on a wide range of topics, such as cross-cultural perspectives on eating behaviors, gender and the food system, recipes, cookbooks, and menu as texts, politics of the family meal, malnutrition, hunger, and food security, comparative food history, and the political economy of the global food system. ---- In the meantime, check out some of the most popular local restaurants and attractions to enhance your visit to Athens: https://www.visitathensga.com/

Dear RC40 members: The Executive Committee of RC40 is working to raise the visibility of our members and increase their collaboration and networking opportunities. Toward that end, we are working to creating a more interactive calendar that allows members to upload content and receive email alerts. In the short term, I am writing to ask you all to share online, non-firewalled, video links of past lectures as well as dates (and links) of future public lectures, seminars, presentations, etc. Please realize, too, that we need this content to relate to the subject matter expertise of our members--the sociology of food and agriculture. This information will then be populated on our existing calendar, which now is sparse (https://www.isa-agrifood.com/conferences). Once we have the functionality we are looking for in our (new) calendar, I will alert you to this change and provide instructions about how to interact with the platform. Please send this information to Dr. Angga Dwiartama, who, in his role on the Executive Committee, graciously provides IT support for the group: dwiartama@office.itb.ac.id I hope you and your loved ones are well. Take care, Michael Carolan On behalf of the RC40 Executive Committee

Dear RC40 Members, Please find below information about the ARUA 2021 Biennial International Conference (pdf is attached). --------- 18-20 November 2021 Theme: Global Public Health Challenges – Facing Them in Africa The ARUA 2021 Biennial Conference, which is taking place from 18 to 20 November 2021, will bring together experts from universities, research institutions, government, industry, civil society, international organizations, etc., to discuss the different steps that African economies need to take in order to face global public health challenges squarely. In reflecting on the prominent lessons from the handling of previous and current pandemics, the medium- to long-term implications of measures and steps taken to contain the spread of the virus in Africa will be the focus of the conference. This will be done in recognition of the interconnectedness of the various issues involved in dealing with a pandemic. Not much has been documented about the COVID-19 pandemic’s full impact in areas such as food security, healthcare, livelihoods, unemployment, governance, economic growth, taxation, public expenditure, and law enforcement. The impact remains largely unknown, especially in the absence of active and sustainable social protection programmes and due to various governance challenges. Nonetheless, the pandemic has exposed the continent’s poor preparedness and vulnerability even as the threat of a future pandemic remains real. What is now clear, and therefore calls for urgent response, is how interconnected national health, social, and economic systems are, and hence the need for them to be developed together. Venue The conference will take place as a blended event at the Future Africa Campus of the University of Pretoria, South Africa, and is jointly hosted by University of Pretoria and University of the Witwatersrand. Although the conference was originally planned to be a physical event, arrangements will be made for participants who opt to participate remotely. arua-sfs@up.ac.za @ARUA_SFS Outputs Resilient Partnerships for African Food Systems Research Outputs The conference is expected to lead to several edited volumes. Depending on the ambitions of the ARUA Centres of Excellence, it should also be possible for each CoE to produce another edited volume. Participation and Submission of Abstracts and Papers Persons interested in participating in the conference may send an abstract of no more than one page to the organisers at info@arua.org.za before 31 May 2021 (the original deadline of 15 February 2021 has been extended due to the Covid-19 situation). Applicants will be notified about decisions on their submissions by 30 June 2021. Completed papers must be submitted before 30 October 2021. There will be funding to support basic travel for a limited number of participants from poorly endowed universities and institutions. Award of such travel grants will be made strictly based on paper quality and the timeliness of submission. More information on the ARUA Biennial International Conference can be obtained from the ARUA Website. The local planning committee members for the Conference include: • Prof. Lindiwe Majele Sibanda (Director and Chair of the ARUA Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Food Systems [email: arua-sfs@up.ac.za] – Chair of organising committee) • Prof. Kuku Voyi (Chairperson: School of Health Systems and Public Health, UP) • Dr Flavia Senkubuge (Head: Behaviour and Health Management Sciences, UP) • Prof. Tivani Mashamba-Thompson (Deputy Dean: Research and Postgraduate Studies, UP) • Dr Farai Kapfudzaruwa (International Strategic Partnerships, UP) • Prof. Lyn-Marie Birkholtz (SARChI Chair: Sustainable Malaria Control, UP) • Prof. Cheikh Mbow (Director: Future Africa, UP) • Dr Mahomed Moolla (Head: Strategic Partnerships, Wits)

Dear all, Please find below an announcement on a webinar series. ---- Agrarian Conversations webinar series: episode 2 Global food regimes and China Wednesday, 28 April 2021, 15:00-16:30 Amsterdam (CET) The second episode in Agrarian Conversations webinar series will be on "Global food regimes and China". What relationship does China have to current food regime transitioning, with the changing geographies of production, circulation and consumption of global food commodities, and the growing significance of agroecological farming? Does China’s deepening international presence portend a new form of food regime hegemony? And what might that look like? If so, what are the implications of such changing dynamics for local, national, and international political struggles for a fairer and kinder agro-food system? The webinar will be in English, Spanish, French and Mandarin. The webinar has a conversational format: initial short inputs from the speakers and panelists, followed by a much longer plenary Q&A. To allow for a dynamic conversational format, we provide a background paper for the webinar that we hope participants will be able to read before the event. For this episode, the (free access) background paper is: McMichael, P. (2020). Does China's ‘going out’ strategy prefigure a new food regime?. Journal of Peasant Studies, 47(1), 116-154. Speakers & panelists: Philip McMichael, Cornell University, USA Yan Hairong, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University Paul Nicholson, La Via Campesina Refiloe Joala, PLAAS, South Africa Andrea P. Sosa Varrotti, Universidad Nacional de San Martin, Argentina Carol Hernandez, National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) Co:Chairs: Ruth Hall, PLAAS; Katie Sandwell, TNI. Please register here.

Cornell Atkinson seeks outstanding, creative, and highly motivated individuals to work with Cornell faculty in collaboration with external organizations and communities to discover and implement sustainable solutions to world needs. Applicants from all areas of study are encouraged to apply (please see attached file for more details about the 2021 request for proposals). Cornell Atkinson Overview Founded by a generous gift from David and Pat Atkinson, the Cornell Atkinson Center for Sustainability empowers researchers to think and work across disciplines to address the threats to local and global sustainability and to create a healthy and resilient future. By providing funding across all campus colleges and prioritizing partnerships with external entities Cornell Atkinson supports radical collaborations for knowledge-to-action programs and projects. Applications are welcome in one or more of the following thematic goals: Building resilient rural-urban systems With the population moving toward 9 billion and increasing urbanization, it will be essential for rural communities and urban centers increase self-reliance in food, energy, and water. Cities need to create and renew built environments that reduce resource consumption and stress on rural areas and the environment. Increasing Food Security Improving the interlinked systems of food production, processing, and distribution to meet the nutritional needs of current and future populations. Enhancing the quality of life of those who are earning a livelihood within food systems and improving the state of the ecosystems on which they depend. Reducing Climate Risks Innovating technology, financial instruments, and policy to reduce greenhouse gas concentrations and mitigate their impact, while adapting agriculture and the built environment for a low-carbon future. Accelerating Energy Transitions Improving the generation, distribution, and storage of clean energy through smart-grid technology, solar and wind installations, and the promotion of smart-energy practices. Advancing One Health Incorporating into our agriculture and the built environment the understanding that human health and happiness are inextricably linked with environmental, livestock, and wildlife health. Social Cost of Water Creating an effective tool for decision-making by the U.S. federal government, states, NGOs, and private industry on water quality, analogous to the ‘social cost of carbon’ estimates. Conservation Finance Creating long-term, diversified sources of revenues that support biodiversity conservation through innovative investment products, providing financial returns, and targeting private investors. Applicants working in areas other than the above are also encouraged to apply. Fellowship Program Objectives Atkinson Postdoctoral Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for motivated individuals to expand their research programs by collaborating with bridging academic disciplines and working with non-academic external organizations to achieve real world impact in sustainability. Our postdoc fellowship program seeks to enable the participation and engagement of non-academic external organizations, individuals, and communities in the research project and help take knowledge to action by incorporating diverse backgrounds, perspectives and expertise. Diversity, inclusion and social justice are critical to sustainability, and at Cornell Atkinson we encourage and seek to support proposals and projects that demonstrate a commitment to these values. This may be through the inclusion of social justice and equity issues in the research agenda, including economic conditions, race, gender, or ethnicity. It may also be through partnering with external organizations which prioritize these values or underserved or underrepresented groups or communities. These fellowships strengthen and expand the center’s work with external organizations, by: Stimulating original interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research and the development of sustainable solutions that address the world’s most pressing sustainability challenges. Developing and deepening connections with external parties in order to strengthen the impact of Cornell research through the real-world implementation of viable sustainability solutions. Developing a cohort of postdoctoral fellows on campus working in sustainability fields who are trained in skills such as science communication, collaboration, and policy. Building a core group of leaders capable of creating effective, workable solutions to the most serious sustainability challenges. Requirements The postdoctoral candidate must have completed a Ph.D. in a relevant field by the start of the fellowship. We welcome applications from any scholarly field, including life and physical sciences, social sciences, engineering, business, the humanities, and the arts. Selection Criteria The factors in making selections will include intellectual merit, creativity, originality, the feasibility of the project, the significance of the challenge being addressed, and expected outcomes of the work, including engagement with external parties to achieve real world impact. The center will also consider the qualifications and accomplishments of the applicant and the potential for the applicant’s intellectual and professional growth. Intellectual Merit: Evaluate the originality, coherence, and clarity of the proposed project. Will the proposal advance understanding and address important sustainability issues? Impact: Will the proposed research project have significant impact or the potential to implement sustainable solutions to world needs? Are the critical steps on the path to impact clearly articulated? What is the likelihood of impact beyond Cornell, scalability, and real-world applications? Social Justice & Equity: To what extent does the proposed project integrate social justice and equity into the research agenda? Does the project have clearly demonstrated potential to benefit underserved or underrepresented groups or communities? Metrics: Does the proposal include clear and appropriate measures of success and explicit milestones with a realistic timeline? Partner Organization: Is the partner organization appropriate for the proposed project? Does the organization bring increased diversity of perspectives and priorities to the proposed project? Are the mutual goals and the contribution to the project clearly explained in the proposal? Is the experience, engagement, and commitment of the assembled team appropriate to achieve success? Qualifications and Accomplishments of the Candidate: To what degree does the fellowship candidate have the required background and experience for the proposed project? Program Structure Up to four fellows will be chosen each year, so that at any given time, there will be four to eight fellows in the program. The start date for new fellows will ideally be between January and August 2021. This is flexible and based on agreement between the candidate’s adviser and the Atkinson Center. The fellowships carry a salary of $62,000 per year, full Cornell University employee benefits, and $15,000 per year for research- and travel-related expenses. The fellowship term is two years. The second year is contingent on performance and mutual agreement between the fellow, the adviser, and the Atkinson Center. Postdoc Fellows are expected to participate in a series of professional development workshops around science communication, collaboration, policy, and career design as part of the Atkinson Sustainability Leadership Program. Postdoctoral fellows can spend variable portions of their fellowship period at Cornell, with external collaborators, in other relevant facilities, or in the field as dictated by their research. All fellows will have access to Cornell’s Office of Postdoctoral Studies, which provides career services, including CV and resume writing, interview preparation, workshops designed specifically for postdocs including a postdoc leadership program, and social activities. The fellow’s appointment will be in the department of the Cornell adviser. The postdoctoral appointment and related financial transactions will be handled by the adviser’s department. • Applicants may identify a potential Cornell adviser by searching the fellows list on our website for faculty engaged in relevant focus areas. Role and Selection of Advisers Each fellow will have two advisers, a lead adviser from Cornell and a collaborating adviser from an external non-university organization. The Cornell adviser must be a Faculty Fellow with a tenure-track or tenured position at Cornell. The Cornell adviser has primary responsibility for the postdoc’s programmatic and professional progress and for communications with Cornell Atkinson and with the external adviser. Applicants may identify a potential Cornell adviser by searching the fellows list on our website for faculty engaged in relevant focus areas. If applicant is currently at Cornell, the postdoc fellowship adviser cannot be the applicant’s current adviser. The collaborating adviser must be from an external non-university organization that will add value to the proposed research and leverage the project for impact. External advisers can be from business, industry, nongovernment or civil society organizations (NGOs and CSOs), foundations, or government.

RC40 plans to hold a new online workshop for agri-food researchers, especially for early-career researchers in more marginal positions in international academia, to support them publishing their paper in the international Agri-food academic journals. We plan to gather draft-paper during the summer and ask Professor Michael Carolan (Colorado State University, US) and other senior agri-food scholars (mainly in the US and are/have been editors of such journals) to read your draft beforehand, and to give advice and answer your questions/difficulties about the paper directly in the online workshop via Zoom meeting. This is a new trial project hoping to broaden the agri-food research in the international academic journals and RC40. Don’t miss this opportunity to receive advice and comments on your draft paper from, or ask questions about the difficulties you are facing directly to, some of the editors of highly reputable international journals in the agri-food studies, in order to successfully submit and get your paper published in a high-impact journal! Aim: to support early-career agri-food researchers and provide feedback on their works-in-progress (i.e., constructive feedback on draft papers) to move the paper forward for successful publication in international journals (NOT the traditional research presentation) written papers will be circulated to the commentators in advance of the workshop. In the workshop, participants will NOT present the contents of paper or research, but rather, the conversation will be around specific issues/problems/difficulties in finalizing the paper for submission. Participants (those who present paper drafts): Any early-career agri-food researchers who can present their draft paper, and participate in the reviewing process and the online workshop (PhD candidates or researchers within five years since achieving PhD) Priority to those who have not yet managed to publish a paper on international journal (in English language) Priority to non-native English language students in non-Western universities/research institutes Participants are pre-registered and disclose their identity About 6 to 8 people per workshop Commentators/advisors: Michael Carolan and other senior RC40 scholars, especially those who are/have been involved in editing agri-food journals such as IJSAF, Agr & Human Values, Rural Sociology, Sociologia Ruralis, Journal of Rural Studies (Michael and the project team are finalizing the mentors now). Planned schedule: Aug. 14th (Sat.): dead line for application (with abstract); The project team decides participants; the participants prepare the drafts Sept. 14th (Mon): deadline of the draft papers (participants submit full-paper-draft); All the participants and senior scholar commentators review the drafts (for 2 weeks) Sept. 29th (Tue), from 10am to around noon Japan Standard Time: Online workshop via zoom This workshop time will be: Monday night in the USA Tuesday morning in Indonesia and other Asian countries Tuesday noon in Australia and NZ With this time arrangement, it should be more convenient for Asian and Oceanian researchers and US editors to participate. Next time, we hope to set time more convenient for European editors and participants from other part of the world. To apply: Please email your abstract (less than 300 words) with title, name, affiliation, and email to Midori (midorihiraga@gmail.com) by the end of Saturday, Aug 14th (Japan Standard Time/JST). If you have any question, also email Midori. Thank you! Project team: Midori HIRAGA Michael CAROLAN Angga DWIARTAMA Karly BURCH
