SASNET Brown Bag seminar with Olle Frödin on November 10th
On Thursday 10 November 2011, at 12.00, SASNET held its third Brown bag lunch seminar during the fall semester 2011. Dr. Olle Frödin from the Department of Sociology spoke about ”Modernization, Neoliberal Globalization or Variegated Development: the Indian Food System Transformation in Comparative Perspective”. See the seminar poster.
Abstract: The lecture reviews three theoretical approaches to agro-food system change, placed at different levels on the ladder of generality. It then considers these approaches in relation to India's changing agro-food system. Finally, it examines the general and the particularistic features of the Indian case, and discusses their implications for theories relating to global governance and international political economy.
The aim of SASNET’s Brown Bag seminars, introduced in January 2011, is to present and disseminate the eminent South Asia related research that is carried out in so many departments at Lund University.
The seminars are open to the public, and during the fall 2011 they are held once a month at Thursdays at Murbeckssalen, Gula Villan (inside the Botanical Gardens), Östra Vallgatan 14, Lund.
