Public lecture by Professor Alan Warde, appointed honorary doctor of the Faculty of Social Sciences 2019, with the title Eating out.

Alan Warde is Professor of Sociology at the University of Manchester in Great Britain. For several years he was also a visiting professor at Uppsala University. Ward is a leading researcher in the sociology of consumption field and his interests include the sociology of eating. For example, he has shown how practice theory can be used as a theoretical framework for analysing and understanding social trends regarding alcohol customs. In recent years his research has included eating in relation to social issues, such as food outside the home, exclusion, inequality and sustainable development. Internationally, research on the sociology of consumption has developed greatly in recent years, and Warde is a very significant researcher in this development.
