Good to Know!

S.L.O.W. Photography - Sense, Linger, Observe, Wait

In this workshop with YiLing Hung, we will put away our smart phones or digital cameras for an afternoon. We are going to take pictures by using analogue cameras. This is not a workshop meant for teaching you practical photography skills, but by applying the SLOW process during the photography activities, we can be mindful and present to the here-and-now and be better connected to the surroundings. By taking time to capture scenes from the city of Wageningen, you may find new things that you had never been aware of before or discover you have specific interests about the city.


Important information:
* The fee is €20 per person for a workshop of 3,5 hours
* For participating in this workshop, you'll have to bring your own analogue camera /film camera. I will encourage you to get a one time use camera. You can find it in various stores. (See provided link below for a list of possible providers) I will suggest to choose ISO 400 or ISO 800 film concerning the limited daylight we have in this season.
* Age requirement: above 12 years old
* Languages: English and Dutch
* Tea, coffee and cookies are included
* The group will have a maximum of 6 participants
* An optional meet-up is offered one month after the workshop where you can bring the digital photos you took during the workshop. In this one-hour meeting, we will share and chat with each other about our photography works.

(RSO-58806) Beyond Sustainability: Theorizing post- & anti-capitalist food futures - Period 6

This course examines radical and critical theories of change that explicitly challenge the dominant, corporate-led and neoliberal global food system. In the course we seek to problematize and re-theorize often taken for granted categories that the status quo of our food system is built around – sustainability; technology; production; economy; growth; and capitalism itself. Food and food systems are deeply political, shaped by historical structures. Yet, food systems are also shaped by the everyday practices of human and non-human actors. The course therefore does not adopt an a-prioriontology of food system change, but rather explores radical alternatives that theorize change across the structure-agency divide. Theoretical approaches examined in the course include Marxist agricultural political economy, racial capitalism, diverse economies, and feminist political ecology. We discuss each theoretical approach in relation to four cross-cutting themes of food system change: land; labour; difference; and ecology. The course also examines social movements that seek to enact radical change, and the institutions that stand in the way. This includes problematizing the role of the neoliberal university in realizing just food futures.
