Call for papers for “Deutscher Kongress für Geographie” in Kiel, Germany, 25 - 30 September 2019

Session organisers: Amelie Bernzen (Cologne) and Marit Rosol (Calgary)

Session title: Local diversity, global unity? Theories and practices of socio-ecological transformations of agri-food systems (L5-FS-108)

Stream: Geography and Global Change

Short Abstract: The need to transform current agri-food systems towards more sustainable pathways is widely acknowledged amongst experts. But how do those alternative approaches differ in theory and practice?

Full Abstract: 
Academic, governmental, civic and economic stakeholders alike stress the necessity and urgency to change the dominant agri-food regime. Seminal publications to that effect include, amongst other, the 2008 IAASTD world agriculture report “Agriculture at a Crossroads” or the final report by the Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food (2014). They paint an alarming picture of present agricultural systems and related global value chains. They warn us that “business as usual is not an option” if we want to reduce hunger and poverty, improve rural livelihoods and human health, and achieve environmentally, socially and economically sustainable development for all. 
At the same time, we find an increasingly complex landscape of “alternative food” approaches, ranging from various organic standards / certification systems, and terms such as organic or biodynamic farming, permaculture, agroecology, ecological intensification to an emphasis on community supported agriculture (CSA), fair trade, urban agriculture, seasonality, local and regional food and more. 
The increasing attention paid to alternative agri-food systems in academic and public debates offers new opportunities but also raises new questions for agri-food geographies. For this session, we invite theoretical / conceptual papers – possibly also empirically grounded and/ or including regional comparisons – that engage with but are not limited to one or more of the following questions:

•	How can we define “alterity” with regard to agriculture and food systems? Which formalised (e.g. standards) and non-formalised approaches of “alternative“ agri-food systems exist? In what way do they differ from each other? 
•	What are paradigms and phases of the debate? Which approaches and terms have been most successful, under which specific conditions, and in which contexts? How can we explain this? To what extent do these approaches complement and reinforce each other, how far do they compete with or contradict each other?
•	How can these approaches, which are generally developed in very specific geographical and societal contexts, be translated into other languages and transferred to other geographical locations? Which challenges does this imply? Are comparisons possible and/or reasonable? 
•	In what ways do changing relationships and understandings of urbanity and rurality play a role in these “alternative“ systems? 

We welcome submissions in English or German. Please direct any questions to the session organizers Amelie Bernzen ([log in to unmask]) and Marit Rosol ([log in to unmask]).

Abstracts need to be submitted directly through the conference website (https://www.con-gressa.de/dkg2019/) on or before January 25, 2019. You need to provide a title (max. 160 characters), a short abstract (max. 200 characters) and a full abstract (max. 2,500 characters). Papers will be selected based on a review by session organizers. Authors will be notified about the status of their submission by the end of March 2019, registration will start April 1st 2019 (https://www.dkg2019.de/registrierung/).

The biennial German Geography Congress (Deutscher Kongress für Geography, DKG) is the most important geography conference in Germany. For more information see (https://www.dkg2019.de/, in German only).

Amelie Bernzen (Köln) und Marit Rosol (Calgary)

Titel: Lokale Vielfalt, Globale Einheit? Theorien und Praktiken sozial-ökologischer Transformationen von Agrar- und Ernährungssystemen (L5-FS-108)

Leitthema 5: Geographie und Globaler Wandel

Kurzabstrakt: Die Notwendigkeit einer Agrar- und Ernährungswende ist in Expert_innenkreisen inzwischen unumstritten. Doch wie unterscheiden sich die diversen alternativen Ansätze in Theorie und Praxis?

Exposé:
Berichte unterschiedlichster wissenschaftlicher, öffentlicher und privatwirtschaftlicher Stakeholder unterstreichen die Dringlichkeit und Notwendigkeit einer auf Gemein- und Tierwohl, Umwelt- und Klimaschutz orientierten Agrarpolitik. Dazu gehören etwa der Weltagrarbericht (IAASTD 2009) oder der Abschlussbericht des UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food (2014). Sie warnen, dass ein „business as usual“, also ein Festhalten an den dominanten landwirtschaftlichen Produktionssystemen und dazugehörigen globalen Wertschöpfungsketten keine tragbare Option für die langfristige Ernährung der Weltbevölkerung sei. Entsprechend erhalten alternative Agrar- und Ernährungssysteme wieder stärkere wissenschaftliche und politische Aufmerksamkeit.
Diese Aufmerksamkeit sowie die inzwischen kaum noch überschaubare Vielfalt „alternativer“ Ansätze (z.B. die diversen Bio-Siegel, Begriffe wie ökologischer Landbau, Permakultur, agroecology, urban agriculture, solidarische Landwirtschaft, Priorisierung von fair trade, Saisonalität oder Regionalität etc.) bietet neue Chancen für die geographische Auseinandersetzung mit den Herausforderungen unserer derzeitigen Agrar- und Ernährungssysteme – wirft jedoch auch neue Fragen auf. 
Wir erbitten für diese Fachsitzung theoretisch-konzeptuelle Beiträge, gern auch empirisch fundiert und in (international) vergleichender Perspektive, zu u.a. den folgenden Fragestellungen: 

•	Wie lässt sich "alternativ" in Bezug auf Landwirtschaft und Ernährung definieren? 
•	Welche Paradigmen und Phasen dieser Debatte lassen sich feststellen? 
•	Welche der Ansätze konnten sich in welchen Kontexten durchsetzen – und wie lässt sich dies erklären? 
•	Inwiefern ergänzen und bekräftigen sich die Ansätze, inwiefern konkurrieren sie miteinander oder widersprechen sich?
•	Wie lassen sich die Ansätze, welche i.d.R. in spezifischen geographischen und gesellschaftlichen Kontexten entwickelt wurden, in unterschiedlichen Sprachen übersetzen und auf andere Räume übertragen? Welche Herausforderungen sind damit verbunden? Inwiefern ist eine Vergleichbarkeit möglich und/oder sinnvoll? 
•	Welche formalisierten (z.B. Standards) und nicht-formalisierten Ansätze "alternativer" Ernährungssysteme gibt es? Wie grenzen sie sich voneinander ab?
•	Inwiefern spielen bei "alternativen" Systemen veränderte Beziehungen und Vorstellungen von Stadt und Land eine Rolle?

Beiträge (auf Deutsch oder Englisch) können ab sofort auf der Konferenzwebseite (https://www.dkg2019.de) eingereicht werden (Leitthema 5, FS 108). Deadline: 25.01.2019. Für Rückfragen stehen wir gern zu Verfügung: Marit Rosol ([log in to unmask]) und Amelie Bernzen ([log in to unmask])
