Information / Knowledge Building
Examples and processes related to the ways that people are gaining knowledge about food in its systemic context.
We all borrow food practices and values from other people. But what are the channels through which we do this? Under what conditions do some people become teachers, and others learners? Items that describe social patterns in these channels and conditions help to explain how “structures of information and knowledge” become a factor shaping the food system.
