Issue #5 is now available online!

Issue #5 Food Rights and Food Fights is now available for viewing and downloading through Issuu. In the 5th issue of Tvergastein we wanted to look at food consumption and production, amongst other things, from a global as well as local perspective. How has globalization impacted local food production? Do we really know what we’re eating? These are some of the questions we sought to answer in this edition. If you’re in Oslo but missed our launch event and would like a hard copy of the journal, you can look for one around UiO Blindern campus, at SUM, and on the NMBU campus in Ås, coming soon.
