Erik Jönsson


Since January 2014 I am working on a three year research project scrutinizing the political ecology of in vitro meat (FORMAS 2013-1510 - Bypassing the beast: Exploring the political ecology of in vitro meat). Herein I strive to grapple the roles ascribed to new food production systems in discourses on sustainable diets, the future landscapes envisioned by in vitro meat proponents, and the current production processes of in vitro meat.

Other research interests primarily concern the political ecology of leisure, future visions and/in spatial planning, and historical landscape geography.
