Project Details


The project aims to

1. Examine the visualization of the family meal through popular media, comparing and contrasting how this has been represented in the two countries.
2. Provide a snapshot of family meals across two cities, Sydney and Edinburgh, as a means of comparing contemporary family food practice and to help understand the role of commensality in healthy eating practices.
3. Illustrate the ability of visual data to add detail and insight into family meal practice and collective identity, beyond the use of textual data.
4. Use the discourse around family eating as a basis for establishing links between food researchers at University of Sydney (UoS) and The University of Edinburgh (UoE) and as a means of building sustainable research and teaching links between the two institutions.
