The Oil Palm Kernel and the Tinned Can

Please look for my article in the forthcoming issue of the new art and applied sociology journal, LIMN, out of UCLA. Issue No. 4 analyzes food infrastructures and addresses scale in food production, provision and consumption. 

I take readers on a fantastical journey beginning in West Africa’s palm plantations and ending in Liverpool’s tin can factories. Condensed milk lovers and refried bean enthusiasts are especially welcome.   

Makalé Faber-Cullen ends our issue with a beautiful reflection on what connects the oil palm tree, the tin can, and colonialism.

update: read the article online here and in late February, purchase the print journal here
