Abstract: This publication is based on the five year Nordic discussion dealing with food and its various roles and meanings in the contemporary society. The discussion has mainly been carried out amongst five university departments, their lecturers, researchers, visiting scholars and enthusiastic students. The Department of Food, Health and Environment from Gothenbourg University, the Department of Food, Nutrition and Dietetics from University of Uppsala and the Department of Curriculum Research, Danish School of Education, Aarhus University from Copenhagen have been the long standing partners. Akershus University College from Norway participated in the beginning of the project and Tallin University from Estonia joined the group two years ago. The Department of Home Economics and Craft Science at University of Helsinki, Finland has coordinated the project. A careful reader will notice that the names of the participating departments have changed during the project and the swaping of names seems just to continue. These structural changes in each university have made the academic discussion more needed that ever. Four intensive learning weeks - in Helsinki, Gothenbourg, Uppsla and Copenhagen - over the years have given the opportunity for the participants to have face-to-face discussions. During the workshops there have always been open lecture sessions to reach for the wider audience but especially through this publication we hope to open the discussions for even wider audiences. Let’s talk about food! Hille Janhonen-Abruquah Päivi Palojoki
