16th Annual Craft Critique Culture Graduate Conference
April 8-9, 2016
Bridging Divides
University of Iowa

CRAFT CRITIQUE CULTURE is an interdisciplinary conference focusing on the intersections of critical and creative approaches to writing both within and beyond the academy. This year's conference will encourage an examination of the "inter" of interdisciplinary—as well as the construction and deconstruction of boundaries between and within academic, public, private, personal, critical, and creative discourses—through an inquiry into bridging divides.

Gastronomy, Culture, and the Arts: A Scholarly Exchange of Epic Portions (March 12-13, 2016), University of Toronto Mississauga

updated: 
Monday, September 7, 2015 - 12:42pm
Gastro Conference, Department of Language Studies

"Foodies consider food to be an art, on a level with painting or drama" (The Official Foodie Handbook, Paul Levy, Ann Barr, 1984).

From the kitchen to the classroom, the preeminence of food has brought gastronomy to the forefront of mainstream culture as well as academic conversation. Devoid of the irony that may have once infused the Handbook statement, food is, and has always been, indeed 'an art, on a level with painting or drama.'

We invite abstracts from all academic disciplines that address the following themes or other related areas:

This panel seeks to explore representations of futuristic cities from all periods in American literature, film, and other cultural mediums. In particular, it seeks papers responding to one or more of the following questions: In what ways have American writers and filmmakers envisioned future urban landscapes? In what ways have these visions changed over the course of American history and why? How have urban theorists, critics, and reformers as well as particular ideologies (Christian, technocratic, socialist, libertarian, environmentalist, etc.) shaped them? In what ways do the past and present (or the erasure of the past and/or present) affect their depictions?
