Making Sense of: Food – 5th Global Meeting

September 1 @ 8:00 am - September 3 @ 5:00 pm

| £295

Food and our experience with it, to it, and by it, requires an integrated approach for its understanding. As such, FOOD5 is inviting presentations from different disciplines and approaches that would enhance the interdisciplinary nature of the topic. The proposed presentations should serve as the beginning of an ongoing dynamic dialogue, with the ultimate goal of moving beyond the limits of the conference itself in order to assist communities in substantive ways. The goal is to have a roomful of food and something enthusiasts, whether it be food and art, food and therapy, food and biostatistics, food and cookbook writing, food and history, the opportunities are endless. With this spirit in mind, presentations, papers, performances, works-in-progress, and/or workshop proposals for FOOD5 are invited to address issues related to any of the following areas (or combination of them):

–appetites (connection between food and sex, desire, hunger, etc.)
–place and space (private vs public eating, formal vs informal food movements, etc)
–authenticity (traditional vs new, cycles or trends, etc.)
–globalization (conquest and contemporary, exchange, standardization, food products all
–ability of language to capture, or not, multi-sensorial nature of the food experience
–food activism (social changes, resistance, reactions, solutions, etc.) and creating food
–food practices (diets, vegetarianism, food fads, ritual foods, etc.)
–teaching of food (food literacy, food history, food and identity, etc.)
–food as identity (collectively, regionally, religiously, etc.)
–food in the 21st century (as it intersects with the advent of the internet social media, immigration,
globalization, etc.)
–food in industry (restaurateurs, chefs, sommeliers.
