spend their time on accessing and consuming food (Townshend and Lake, 2017 ). There is a need to understand ‘foodways’, which relate to the interplay between individual processes and broader context (Alkon et al., 2013 ; Cannuscio, Weiss and Asch, 2010 ). The term ‘foodways’ refers to ‘the cultural and social practices that affect food consumption, including how and what communities eat, where and how they shop and what motivates their food preferences’ (Alkon et al., 2013 : 127). Alkon et al. ( 2013 : 126) conclude that ‘cost, not lack of knowledge or physical

concerning war have been problematised as well. It is recognised that war is not a permanent and unchanging principle or institution, but rather a social practice with its own history. Quincy Wright has argued that modern war ‘rests upon an elaborate ideological construction maintained through education in a system of language, law, symbols and values’. 1 War is a practice with typical modes of performance

like Cambridge University studied colonial products in research institutes where they had very little regular contact with local people apart from those they employed. These researchers did not spend so much time out in the field, and were not routinely engaged in the direct manipulation of the economic and social practices of local communities in the name of improvement. Instead their work contributed to the exercise of colonial power through the production of representations of the tropics and colonised peoples; representations that were often informed by the

national identity and a shared interest in security account for order within the state. To account for ties that extend beyond state borders, it is logical then to propose a common humanity or human essence.

Applied drama, ‘sympathetic presence’ and person-centred nursing

demonstrate their clinical skills through evaluation processes like the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE), which includes elements of simulation and role play. There has been little crossover to date between the specific practice of health care simulation and the broader social practices of applied drama. Applied drama interventions that do engage with health care training often seek to support the development of creativity and empathy in general terms, in line with the idea that the medical humanities can help to humanise medicine (White, 2009 ; Baxter

Redefining security in the Middle East
Tami Amanda Jacoby and Brent E. Sasley

existential threat and special measures designed to meet that threat are created by uttering particular discourses ( Buzan, Waever and de Wilde, 1998 ). Influenced to a large extent by Lacan’s definition of ‘the symbolic order’ ( 1977 ) and Foucault’s notion of discourse as a ‘social practice’ ( 1972 ), critical security studies scholars have demonstrated that security is itself a discourse, or

. Cognizant of this duality, Foucault ( 1986 : 51–3) framed responsibility not as ‘an exercise in solitude, but a true social practice … a recognized hierarchy [giving] the most advanced members the task of tutoring the others’. Responsibility is ‘the attention one devotes to the care that others should take of themselves, [which] appears then as the intensification of social relations
