[Commlist] CFP for the International Seminar Visual Framing of Food Technologies

Tue Aug 20 10:28:40 GMT 2019

Call for papers – EXTENDED DEADLINE –

International Seminar Visual Framing of Food Technologies

Wageningen University & Research (Netherlands), 16-18 October 2019

In the age of post truth, scientifically informed visualizations and imaginaries of innovative food technologies are hard to distinguish from the production of art, or even ‘alternative facts’. These visuals travel easily across administrative borders through internet platforms (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube), affecting both online and offline social, political, policy and regulatory practices. Visualization and visual framing play an important – but often neglected – role in affecting actor relations, and the space to deal with innovations in food production and consumption.

To encourage international transdisciplinary collaborations and cross-pollination of ideas and methods, the Department of Social Sciences of Wageningen University and Research organizes the first “International Seminar on Visual Framing of Food Technologies” on 16th until the 18th of October, 2019.

The seminar consists of a roundtable and three keynote lectures by Prof. Huub Dijstelbloem; Dr. Kelly Clancy, and Prof. Sabine Niederer. Next to that, we organize paper panels for which we invite you to send an abstract.

Topics for the paper-sessions include (but are not limited to): (1) data-visualization of food and food (processing) technologies; (2) Visual framing analysis of food (processing technologies) on Internet and social media platforms; (3) Traveling of facts, fiction and ‘myths’ on the internet, in social media; (4) Trust and communication of science through visualizations.

Please send your abstract (500 words max.), title, along with your affiliation and contact information to (eduardo.rojaspadilla /at/ by 20th August, 2019. Review and acceptance of papers can be expected by 10th September, 2019.

This seminar is organized by Dr. Tamara Metze, Eduardo Rojas-Padilla; Dr. Elaine Rabello, and Efrat Gommeh (Public Administration and Policy), Dr. Jasper de Vries (Strategic Communication) and Prof. Dr. Karin Schroen (Food Processes Engineering), and supported by the Department of Social Sciences of Wageningen University and Research (WUR) Excellence grant.
