On behalf of the Doctoral Schools of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), the research group on Social and Cultural Food Studies (FOST), the Crime and Society research group (CRIS) and FARO (Vlaams Steunpunt voor Cultureel Erfgoed) we are delighted to invite you to our Master class 'Food in Prison'.

Just as food plays and important role in society, eating and cooking inside prison is imbued with significance. Although research on food in general society becomes very popular, research on prison food remains rather scarce. The few researchers who tackle this topic work in distinctive disciplines and their results are rarely discussed outside their specific research field. This creates problems to interpret, introduce and use these results in a prison context and hampers the development of a deliberate prison policy.
