Various cultures live in the Mediterranean. Various civilizations have lived in Turkey and Cyprus. Also, the immigrants brought their own food to Turkey and Cyprus. Sephardim came to the Ottoman Empire after their expulsion from Spain in 1492. Additionally, Ashkenazim settled in Turkey. Cyprus have had Turkish, Greek, Jewish, Armenian, Italian, and British inhabitants for centuries.
In this symposium, we wish to focus on the food culture of various cultural groups that live in Turkey, Cyprus, and in other Mediterranean countries, and investigate the relationship between the food culture and cognition in different fields, such as Linguistics, Anthropology, Education, Translation Studies, History, Literature, and Jewish Studies. We expect to receive the 150 – 250 word abstracts of your presentations and 5 (five) keywords for your presentations until March/01/2008. 20 (twenty) minutes will be given for each presentation, and 10 (ten) minutes will be left for questions. Papers of the accepted abstracts should be written in the APA style. Papers should be submitted at the end of the symposium.
