Offering Food <----> Refusing Food
A Special Edition of the Journal for Psycho-Social Studies
All of us at different times and in different places have been both offerers or withholders and receivers or refusers of food. This Special Edition gathers psycho-social and philosophical perspectives alongside the voices of lived experience. We present poetry, images, voices, creative writing, analysis and commentary to explore and discuss what emerges when practices of both offering and receiving, in reciprocal relationships within both familial and societal contexts, go awry.
