    On Food Security and Alternative Food Networks: Understanding and Performing Food Security in the Context of Urban Bias.Jane Dixon & Carol Richards - 2016 - Agriculture and Human Values 33 (1):191-202.
    This paper offers one explanation for the institutional basis of food insecurity in Australia, and argues that while alternative food networks and the food sovereignty movement perform a valuable function in building forms of social solidarity between urban consumers and rural producers, they currently make only a minor contribution to Australia’s food and nutrition security. The paper begins by identifying two key drivers of food security: household incomes and nutrition-sensitive, ‘fair food’ agriculture. We focus on this second driver and argue (...)

    From the Imperial to the Empty Calorie: How Nutrition Relations Underpin Food Regime Transitions. [REVIEW]Jane Dixon - 2009 - Agriculture and Human Values 26 (4):321-333.
    This article works in a recursive manner by using the tools of a food regime approach to reinterpret the nutrition transition that has been underway internationally for 100 years, and then describing the contributions of nutrition science to the 1st and 2nd Food Regimes and the passages between Food Regimes. The resulting history—from the ‘imperial calorie’ through the ‘protective’ vitamin to the ‘empty calorie’—illuminates a neglected dimension to food regime theorising: the role of socio-technical systems in shaping a set of (...)

    There’s Certainly a Lot of Hurting Out There: Navigating the Trolley of Progress Down the Supermarket Aisle. [REVIEW]Jane Dixon & Bronwyn Isaacs - 2013 - Agriculture and Human Values 30 (2):283-297.
    For the past decade, supermarket chains have been positioned as the pre-eminent actor in global and national food systems. Some agri-food scholars argue that their ever-expanding transnational supply chains have established an era of stable production-consumption relations (or Food Regime), while others point to the conflicts they are encountering with governments, social movements and ‘alternative’ consumers. However, remarkably little attention has been paid to their relationship with communities and to community system sustainability. Based on fieldwork conducted in the Goulburn Valley, (...)

    A Cultural Economy Model for Studying Food Systems.Jane Dixon - 1999 - Agriculture and Human Values 16 (2):151-160.
    In 1984, William Friedland proposed a Commodity Systems Analysis framework for describing the stages through which a commodity is transformed and how it acquires value. He challenged us to think of commodities as entities with a social as well as a physical presence. Friedland's argument enriched the concept of commodity production, but it remains essentially a supply side perspective.Since then, many commentators have argued that power is shifting from producers to consumers. Furthermore, some are claiming that, contrary to much traditional (...)

    Privacy and Confidentiality Issues in Primary Care: Views of Advanced Practice Nurses and Their Patients.Terry Deshefy-Longhi, Jane Karpe Dixon, Douglas Olsen & Margaret Grey - 2004 - Nursing Ethics 11 (4):378-393.
    Various aspects of the concepts of privacy and confidentiality are discussed in relation to health care information in primary health care settings. In addition, findings are presented from patient and nurse practitioner focus groups held to elicit concerns that these two groups have in relation to privacy and confidentiality in their respective primary care settings. The focus groups were held prior to the implementation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accessibility Act in the USA. Implications for advanced practice registered nurses (...)

    Implications of Structure Versus Agency for Addressing Health and Well-Being in Our Ecologically Constrained World: With a Focus on Prospects for Gender Equity.Helen L. Walls, Colin D. Butler, Jane Dixon & Indira Samarawickrema - 2015 - International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics 8 (2):47-69.
    Individual choice and freedom are repeatedly invoked in contemporary policy debates, including those with a focus on risk behaviors such as smoking and health insurance coverage. The idea of making the right choice with regard to health and well-being has been fortified by the neoliberal discourse of self-reliance, personal autonomy, and responsibility. This neoliberal view, stemming from the conceptualization of freedom of philosopher John Stuart Mill justifying the freedom of the individual in opposition to unlimited state control, holds that success, (...)

    Traditional, Modern or Mixed? Perspectives on Social, Economic, and Health Impacts of Evolving Food Retail in Thailand.Matthew Kelly, Sam-ang Seubsman, Cathy Banwell, Jane Dixon & Adrian Sleigh - 2015 - Agriculture and Human Values 32 (3):445-460.
    Transnational food retailers expanded to middle-income countries over recent decades responding to supply and demand. Control in new markets diffuses along three axes: socio-economic, geographic, and product category. We used a mixed method approach to study the progression of modern retail in Thailand on these three axes and consumer preferences for food retailing. In Thailand modern retail controls half the food sales but traditional fresh markets remain important. Quantitative questionnaires administered to members of a large national cohort study revealed around (...)

    Hum of the Hive.Ferne Edwards & Jane Dixon - 2016 - Society and Animals 24 (6):535-555.
    A contestation is underway in Australian cities between humans and the European honeybee, which has heightened in recent years as amateur beekeeping has emerged in response to environmental concerns. This paper reports on a brief ethnographic encounter among old and new amateur beekeepers located across Sydney, Australia. Older beekeepers were motivated mainly by a desire for a social hobby, whereas younger apiarists were attracted by the role bees play in addressing environmental concerns, including biodiversity, food self-sufficiency, and greening the city.
