[ecrea] Communicating Food: An Interdisciplinary Symposium

Tue Jul 11 21:05:24 GMT 2017

*Call for Papers:*

*Communicating Food: An Interdisciplinary Symposium* (single day event), hosted by The Department of Media, University of Chester, in association with the NoWFood Centre and the Institute of Gender Studies.

University of Chester, Parkgate Road campus, Chester.

*Friday 22**^nd ** September 2017*

The relationship of food and culture is the focus of this interdisciplinary one-day symposium. Food’s complex connections with issues of social class, race, gender, religion, and globalization underpin this symposium, and so we encourage abstracts from any relevant area of academic inquiry. Further, depictions of food in the media carry an increasingly important commercial imperative, relating to wider, structural issues concerning the contemporary media economy; food frequently chimes with prevailing depictions of lifestyle and celebrity.

*Themes might include, but are not limited to:*

Food and Media (broadcasting, journalism, film, literature, new media)

Food and the environment

Food scares

Food cultures

The politics of food production

Eating disorders

Food ‘porn’ and lifestyle

Food counterculture

Food and identity (class, gender, sexuality, race, religion, or ethnicity)

Postcolonial food

Food and the EU/Brexit

GM/food safety

Neoliberalism and food

Queries, and abstracts of no more than 200 words, should be sent to the symposium organisers by 5pm on Monday 7^th August 2017 (papers will be 20 minutes long):
