  1. Contested agri-food futures: Introduction to the Special Issue.Mascha Gugganig, Karly Ann Burch, Julie Guthman & Kelly Bronson - 2023 - Agriculture and Human Values 40 (3):787-798.
    Over recent decades, influential agri-food tech actors, institutions, policymakers and others have fostered dominant techno-optimistic, future visions of food and agriculture that are having profound material impacts in present agri-food worlds. Analyzing such realities has become paramount for scholars working across the fields of science and technology studies (STS) and critical agri-food studies, many of whom contribute to STSFAN—the Science and Technology Studies Food and Agriculture Network. This article introduces a Special Issue featuring the scholarship of STSFAN members, which cover (...)

  • Everyday digitalization in food and agriculture: Introduction to the symposium.Jérémie Forney, Angga Dwiartama & Dana Bentia - 2023 - Agriculture and Human Values 40 (2):417-421.
    Research addressing the challenges emerging from the development and diffusion of digital technologies has grown rapidly in recent years. However, much of this literature tends to overlook the immersion of these technologies into our everyday lives. This everyday digitalization cannot be reduced to specific technological innovations and is obviously a crucial aspect of the social changes introduced by digital technologies. This themed issue sets out to explore the everyday dimension of digitalization, in the specific context of agri-food systems. We propose (...)

  • Inserting machines, displacing people: how automation imaginaries for agriculture promise ‘liberation’ from the industrialized farm.Patrick Baur & Alastair Iles - 2023 - Agriculture and Human Values 40 (3):815-833.
    An emerging discourse about automated agricultural machinery imagines farms as places where farmers and workers do not need to be, but also implicitly frames farms as intolerable places where people do not want to be. Only autonomous machines, this story goes, can relieve farmers and workers of this presumed burden by letting them ‘farm at a distance’. In return for this distanced autonomy, farmers are promised increased control over their work-life balance and greater farm productivity from letting ‘smart’ robots assume (...)
