Dr Oona Morrow is an Assistant Professor in Food Sociology at the Rural Sociology Group, Wageningen University & Research, the Netherlands. Oona’s research is broadly concerned with the economic and environmental politics of everyday life, a theme she has engaged through research on diverse economies, urban agriculture, household sustainability, gender and work, food security, and rural poverty. Through this work, Oona explores and actively participates in the processes through which everyday food and sustainability practices become institutionalised by organisations, and supported by policy and planning.
Oona’s Post-Doctoral research with SHARECITY investigated opportunities for sharing things, spaces, and skills across the food system, from production and consumption, to food rescue and redistribution, to cooking, eating and composting. As a member of the SHARECITY Team in 2016-2018, Oona engaged in ethnographic research in Berlin and New York, and contributed to the conceptual, theoretical, and methodological development of the project, which seeks to bridge the gap between previous research on alternative food networks, emergency food, food waste, and the sharing economy.
