Innovation of food, innovation of Europe? (DFG)

This research project explores norms, discourses, and practical applications of innovation, technology and experiential knowledge in ‘sustainable’ agriculture, both at the European Union level and in Germany. Following a multisited ethnographic research approach, it attends to agricultural praxis, policy and media reporting to explore farming beyond common binaries, such as ‘high-tech’ vs. ‘backward’ farming, and what (pan-)national societal and political visions are reflected in contemporary agriculture.
