Dr Petr Jehlička gave a keynote ‘(Home-grown) Food for Thought: Putting the European East Back on the Map of Knowledge Production’

Dr. Petr Jehlička gave a keynote ‘(Home-grown) Food for Thought: Putting the European East Back on the Map of Knowledge Production’ at the 11th Annual Conference of the Estonian Social Sciences held at Tartu University on 28 April 2019. The talk discussed the growing debates in the social sciences on the inequality of knowledge production and the context-dependent hierarchy of knowledge claims. Drawing on recent research on the East European informal food economy the talk sought to counter the scripting of East European scholarship as being on the margins of knowledge production.

 

During his visit to Tartu Petr also gave an interview on this topic to the Estonian daily Postimees which was published in the weekend edition of the newspaper on 8 June 2019:
