|Organized:||FS “Traditional Food Preservation and Cache Using Freezing Environment
- Transformation and Heritage of “Food Life History” of the North under the Global Environmental Shift -”,
Research Institute for Humanity and Nature (RIHN)
We would like to draw your attention to the 2nd 2-day workshop (WS) on "Food Life History of the North", organized as a part of the project on “Traditional Food Preservation and Cache Using Freezing Environment –Transformation and Heritage of “Food Life History” of the North Under the Global Environmental Shift–” at the Research Institute for Humanity and Nature (RIHN), Kyoto, Japan. The cold storage practice (underground cache and pits) is closely related to their food security, food sovereignty, culture, and health in the local communities in the Beringia region. The project aims to document the traditional use of cold storage, which has been greatly affected by global-scale environmental changes both natural and man-related, to address the current issues the community members are facing, and to aid the communities shaping their way for subsequent use by knowledge co-production, sharing, and networking.
The WS consists of one panel discussion (day 1), three thematic sessions (day 1-2), and one plenary discussion (day 2), securing more time for discussion than the 1st WS. In the panel discussion, researchers of different academic and personal background share their experiences regarding limitations in conducting research in the northern local communities away from their home, their attitude and perspective to the local communities at the research, and how to ensure local values and sharing of knowledge. Preliminary results from the field studies conducted in this year will be reported In the respective Siberia and Alaska sessions,. The plenary discussion expects to augment ideas and information of the two-day presentations with the participants, and to shape the needs and deeds of the research on the cold storage practice.
