Invitation to learn about Fast Food in Ghana’s Restaurants (November 20th at 11:00)

On Thursday, November 20, 2014 at 11:00 am in the Aula (General Foulkesweg 1a, Wageningen), Rose Omari will defend her PhD thesis titled: Fast Food in Ghana’s Restaurants: Prevalence, Characteristics, and Relevance, an interdisciplinary perspective. 

The defence will include a public presentation which will explain why it is impossible to achieve an universal definition of fast food because of its continuous re-contextualization in time and space. The thesis also addresses questions related to health, technology and the environment, and reflects on these questions in the context of developing countries.

Everyone is welcome. 

The proceedings will also be streamed online at this site:
