We celebrate NAFS’s 10th anniversary with a one-day conference on the relationship between food and social theory. What social theories are fruitful for use in food studies? What recent trends are noticeable? What challenges do food studies pose for social theory and how can insights from food studies contribute to the development of social theory? And perhaps the most challenging question: Does food studies need a theory of its own, and if so, what should be the purpose of it?
For this conference, we welcome contributions that in some way or other comment on the use of theory, especially social theory, in the field of Food studies. Program - NAFS Jubilee Conference (319 Kb)
