CFP: Food and Culture Conference

It kind of seems like this conference was invented for our class to dominate. Anyone want to get a panel together? I’ve always wanted to visit Pittsburgh.

What we choose to eat, when we eat it, with whom we eat it, and how we eat it is influenced by technology, economics, politics, fashion, tradition, religion, and other aspects of culture. Food not only answers our most basic physical needs, but also is central to social ritual and the construction of culture playing a vital symbolic role in forming societies.Proposals are welcome on all aspects of American and popular culture. To submit a proposal, please send a 300-word abstract and a brief CV or bio by June 15, 2012. Panels of 3 presenters, single papers, roundtables, or alternative formats are encouraged.

With 40 different areas of presentation, MAPACA seeks a diverse group of presenters across many disciplines and at all level of study including student, professional, and independent scholars. The annual conference will be November 1-3, 2012 at the Wyndam Grand in downtown Pittsburgh.
