Sarah Martin 2014

Sarah is an Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John’s, NL. She researches the global political economy of food and agriculture with a particular interest in the interactions between finance, markets and agriculture. Her past research has explored transnational foodservice corporations, and social movements and food sovereignty. Sarah’s research interests are informed by her experiences as a cook and chef in a variety of settings from institutional cafeterias to high-end restaurants to remote logging camps. These experiences have led to a particular interest in how politics are practiced in the everyday.
