We are soliciting papers from all disciplines discussing the peoples of the Americas and how they perceive/relate to food and foodways.
This interdisciplinary colloquium will explore the economic, political, cultural, demographic, religious, and philosophical aspects of food production, preparation, consumption and culture, as well as how food is represented in the literary and visual arts.
We hope to bring in presenters who will, as a group, offer a variety of perspectives about the issue.
This year, we are pleased to be hosting a reading by Laura Schenone, author of A Thousand Years Over a Hot Stove: A History of American Women, which was the Winner of the 2004 James Beard Foundation Book Award for Food and Reference Writing. Her other works include The Lost Ravioli Recipes of Hoboken.
We are extending the submissions deadline to January 16.
