Days of paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters, and colloquia.
Delegates from all over the world who attended the Eighth International Conference on Food Studies.
Visual representations of food have become a central theme in digital social media. These representations are not simply literal, displaying what we eat: they also capture who we aspire to be in our social lives and our corporeal being. What do these representations tell us about the location of food in the broader social, economic, and political vectors of life in a digital age?
The Eighth International Conference on Food Studies featured plenary sessions by some of the world’s leading thinkers and innovators in the field.
For each conference, a small number of Emerging Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students and emerging scholars who have an active academic interest in the conference area. The Award, with its accompanying responsibilities provides a strong professional development opportunity for early career academics. The 2018 Emerging Scholar Awardees are listed below.
Virtual Posters present preliminary results of work or projects that lend themselves to visual representations. Download the posters below.
