Short summary
This article concentrates on crises within social geography and discusses the geography of social crises using the example of environmental injustice and the somatization of the environment with respect to food and health. By extending the surface view on embodied subjects as being socio-culturally encoded and discursively normalized, metabolic processes are also addressed. The body is understood as the place where social crises, structures of inequality and discursive categories materialize.
