    The 2^nd  Biennial Conference on Food & Communication: Discourses on
    the Future of Food

    Ljubljana, 23-25 September 2020, Call for abstracts: deadline Jan
    15^th 2020

    *Keynote speaker*Prof. Josée Johnston, University of Toronto

    Food features as a powerful cultural signifier, often evoking
    associations with issues of gender, class, race and power.
    Food-related activities, such as grocery shopping, meal preparation,
    and eating, along with the public and private spaces in which these
    activities occur, provide the basis for many of our complex daily
    communicative practices. Food is also located at the core of some of
    the most challenging social issues of our time, often manifested in
    oppressive relations of inequality, and in the placement of food at
    the center of calls for social justice. Today, cumulative
    food-related crises and controversies have become central to ongoing
    attempts to address the health of the global population and the planet.


*Scholars are invited to explore the cultural and discursive construction of food as well as/narratives about the emergence of alternative solutions to, and new imaginaries about, the future of food./*


*This may include analyses of political and policy texts on food sovereignty, security, safety and nutrition, food waste, and sustainability; texts produced by the food industry, including advertising, packaging, labeling, menus, and social media; consumer and media narratives on “the pleasures of the table”; and texts promoting gastronomic tourism, to name just a few.//*

    *Abstracts of 300-500 words and queries can be submitted
    to:*(foodandcommunication /at/
    <mailto:(foodandcommunication /at/> *or via the conference
    web page.* <>
