[Commlist] cfp: Communicating for Food Sustainability

Wed Aug 19 15:38:22 GMT 2020

OCTOBER 22/23, 2020-------------------------------------------------

.... Call for submissions
     Deadline September 18, 2020

Food correlates to a number of environmental issues from land and water use
to pollution from pesticides and herbicides. Food production, packaging, and
waste all impact the environment. Sustainable perspectives of food may also
connect with morality, ethics, and spirituality. Of course, issues of labor
and culture surface as well. Individual practices and social structures all
come into how we feed ourselves.

Whether you take the perspective of a researcher, digging into interviews
about food or analyzing food policies, for example, OR an artist who creates
food-related sculptures or performance pieces, for example, OR a
practitioner, helping local community members start gardens or cook with the
veggies in their CSAs, for example, we’d love to hear what you know about
how best to communicate for sustainable food.

The conference will be on October 22/23, 2020 depending on where you are in
the world. We will select panelists for a more academic/artistic-focused
panel and facilitators for an applied, practitioner-focused workshop. We
recognize that there may be overlap in these categories and that your role
does not preclude you from applying for one or the other. So, you can
self-identify your proposal as either for the panel or workshop.

All presenters must be members of the IECA at the time of the event.
Conference attendance will be open to everyone.

Submissions must focus on the theme of *communicating for food
sustainability. Please submit a 500-word summary of your presentation or
workshop idea via email to (Samantha.Senda-Cook /at/ [1] by September
18, 2020.* Include in your proposal what time zone you’re in and if you are
willing to present at an inconvenient time (e.g., early morning, late
evening, or even the middle of the night where you live).
