Food Poverty across Ireland: Past, Current and Future Perspectives.

Dates: 5 May 2023

This symposium will engage with the theme through the lens of humanities, history, culture, social justice and sociology. By interweaving these into clinical- and science-based approaches, broader perspectives will be developed to help better understand and form responses to policies and problems, consider rights-based approaches to food, while also promoting empathetic attitudes towards how families budget, make food choices and prioritise overlapping issues such as health, cost and survival. The location will increase potential to engage medics so that they gain a historical/cultural awareness of food poverty.

To take part please submit a 200 word abstract and brief CV by 30 March 2023 to either i.miller@ulster.ac.uk or foodpovertysymposium2023@gmail.com
