Biographical details

Bill Pritchard is an Associate Professor in Human Geography specialising in agriculture, food and rural places. His is interested in the ways that global and local processes are transforming places, industries and people's lives. He remains a skeptical internationalist - believing in the promise of a better world but frustrated by the obstacles that beset this objective.

Bill has undertaken research for a number of leading national and international organisations, and his work is cited widely within professional circles. He is an author of three books, an editor of a further four, and has published around 50 refereed articles and chapters.He has been engaged in several major consulting research projects, and given over 50 conference presentations.

Dr Pritchard carries with him a geographer's passion to understand our world. His philosophy is to eschew abstract modelling in favour of approaches with seek to appraise how places and economies are forged through the cluttter of geographical circumstance, historical process, and institutional practice. In his own life, by way of contrast, he tries to avoid as much clutter as possible with interests in bush and urban walking, falling asleep on beaches on warm days, kayaking on Sydney Harbour, and taking an entire day to read the paper.

Research interests

Over the course of his career, Bill's research interests in agriculture, food and rural places have been channeled through a series of research foci and activities.

Global food security. Bill is a frequent commentator in the media and an invited speaker to public forums on this topic. In May 2013, Bill gave a talk to TEDx Sydney talk at the Sydney Opera House on global food security (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJc0tYNGcWo). In 2011, He was an invited panellist to the World Bank Praxis Discussion forum “Food Security” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8j7D2NUFpn4. In November 2013 he was an invited expert on food security to the Commonwealth People's Forum during CHOGM, Sri Lanka.

Food security in India. From 2010-14, Bill has been Chief Investigator of a major international research project undertaking household-scale analyses of food security and livelihoods in rural India. With his collaborators on this project (Prof Anu Rammohan, UWA & Prof Madhushree Sekher, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai), the team has surveyed several hundred households and studied the local institutional settings in which these households are situated. Findings from this project have been published in the book Feeding India (2013, Routledge) http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415529679/ as well as in a number of journal articles, and Indian newspapers http://www.hindustantimes.com/editorial-views-on/ColumnsOthers/How-India-s-food-security-question-can-be-answered/Article1-1135620.aspx

Global value chains. Bill has a long-standing research interest in the geographical implications of different ways in which agri-food products are connected to consumers (from paddock to plate) through global value chains. In Australia, his work in this area has involved studies of the wine, beef and dairy sectors. Internationally, it has covered the tea and coffee sectors, and this latter work (conducted with Jeff Neilson) led to the publication of Value Chain Struggles: Institutions and Governance in the Plantation Districts of South India (Blackwell, 2009) (http://au.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-1405173939.html). He was also a global reviewer of UNCTAD's 2009 World Investment Report (Transnational Corporations, Agricultural Production and Development).

Regional change in Australia. He is co-author (with Andrew Beer, Alaric Maude) of Developing Australia's Regions: Theory and Practice (UNSW Press, 2003) and was lead investigator in the four-year project The Aggregation and Fragmentation of Rural Land in Australia (https://rirdc.infoservices.com.au/items/12-038). Over the years he has given numerous presentations to Regional Development Organisations and other bodies.

The global tomato! Yes indeed. Between 2000-04, Bill (with David Burch, of the Griffith University) undertook a study which sought to understand the processes of globalisation in the food industry by examining the international restructuring of trade and production arrangements in the processing tomato industry. The ensuing book - Agri-food Restructuring in Perspective: International Restructuring in the Processing Tomato Industry (Ashgate, 2003) - was described by one reviewer in the following terms: “Pritchard and Burch’s contribution [in this book] to this research field now suggests a need to recast the conceptual terminology of commodity analyses” Le Heron, R. (2004). Assembling the world tomato industry: trialling truth trails. Journal of Rural Studies(20), pp. 383–85.

Teaching and supervision

Over the decade to 2013, Bill supervised 23 Honours students and five PhD students.
