Bee Farrell

In 2019 I started a funded PhD project that will look at how the digital and physical food worlds (the spaces we make and share stories of food) are interconnected. I have worked on food related projects and research within heritage, culture, education and community projects. These projects include www.cultureofthecountryside and www.woodbridgetidemill.org and, food education programmes within schools and communities. As a public food anthropologist I have written journal articles, a book chapter, guides, reports, policy frameworks, website entries, and presented papers at conferences. My consultation specialisms are how the internet impacts what we eat, that food heritage can inspire modern eating (which includes recipe research and creation, traditional skills and bygone ingredients) and urban food security. I co-curate food experiences to enliven, inform or communicate www.anthropologistsofeating.org that deepen and contextualise my writing.
