September 2015: Fifth International Conference on Food Studies

Food Studies Logo

The International Conference on Food Studies is focal point for research and practice-based discussion at a time when there is growing public interest and discussion about food and culture and well being. The event is an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of agricultural, environmental, nutritional, social, and cultural perspectives on food.

In 2015, the conference will concentrate on three key themes: food production and sustainability, food nutrition and health, and food politics, policies, and cultures. Abstracts for papers, panels, and workshops that address these themes are now being accepted online. See here for more information about the call for proposals. Abstract submissions are accepted on a monthly rolling basis, with the next deadline set for January 6, 2015. Abstracts may be submitted online, and individuals may submit more than one proposal.

Registration for the full conference or just portions of the event are offered, and there are student discounts. A link to online registration is here. Note that prices increase on January 1. For more information, or if you have questions, contact Common Ground, facilitators for the conference.
