This event may be of interest to members of the Waite community.

The Australian Food, Society and Culture Network invites submissions of abstracts for Food and Place, Food and Displace, to be held in Adelaide on November 9th 2018 (10-4 pm).

The aim of this one-day symposium is to present and discuss research on the relationships between eating, drinking, place and culture. We will be looking at the ways in which settings, places and habitats construct opportunities for old and new forms of alimentation and cultural significance. The symposium will also present research on the experiences of those who have been, by accident or design, displaced from their foodways. There will be an optional tastings tour of the Adelaide Central Market following the symposium.

The scope of research could include, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Food, eating and identity
  • Crossing food boundaries
  • Home as place: household food patterns and practices
  • Eating out, and eating in – the food delivery economies
  • Food geographies and place
  • Culturally displaced food/eating
  • Food tourism and authenticity
  • Foodways and mobility
  • Risky eating and drinking places and spaces
  • Food, eating and virtual places
  • Post-dining and food as performance
  • Digital food/culture

In addition to presentation and discussion of research, the event will include an interactive workshop to critically examine the barriers to translation of research in this area of scholarship into policy and practice. Special attention will be given to communicative activities in the symposium that maximise engagement and interactivity of participants.

Submissions close September 30th 2018
