Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery

Paper-proposers are asked to consider methods of transmitting information about all aspects of food production, preparation, presentation and consumption from the earliest times to the latest – from painted prey-animals on the walls of the Lascaux caves to the byways of Wikipedia.
While the subject is open to wide interpretation, themes that might be addressed include the extent to which society is influenced or/and altered by information passed on by electronic means – food-related websites and bloggers, Facebook, Twitter, image-sharing media – as well as messages delivered in traditional format by recipe-writers, restaurant-reviewers, nutritionists, sociologists, food-historians, and through conferences such as our own.

Landscape architecture and urban planning join aesthetics of design with the hard science of engineering. These areas foreground the complex influence of history and culture in the mapping and planning of social space. Since men have traditionally served as both prime architects and builders of metropolitan areas--designing plans and constructing buildings from the ground up--it is unsurprising that they have historically dominated cities. Contrastingly, women have been encouraged, implicitly and explicitly, to remain within the interior spaces of the home, or even far more distanced from society.

Taking up the 2015 SSAWW conference theme of "Liminal Spaces, Hybrid Lives," this panel will investigate work produced by women in the United States at the turn of the twentieth century for whom human interaction with the landscape was a central artistic concern. These women oriented themselves to the landscape through travel and exploration, desire and consumption, and through artistic representation reimagined the body, history, social-sexual formations, racial and gender categories, and sometimes humanness itself. Such reorienting encounters with landscape, meanwhile, formed part of late-nineteenth-century leisure class tourism and the romantic consumption of the natural world at a moment of expanded U.S. imperialism both at home and abroad.

CFP MSA 17, November 19-22, 2015. Boston, MA. Westin, Copley Place

The theme for MSA's 17th annual convention is revolution. The articulation of revolution is of particular interest – manners of expression and mediums of the propagation of "revolution" in any form offer insight and new avenues into the modern era. This CFP seeks proposals that explore revolutionary rhetoric in the early twentieth century: gender, political, scientific, socio-cultural, racial, artistic, print/media, and literary. Interdisciplinary approaches strongly encouraged. Please send proposal and 3 sentence bio to heather.lusty@unlv.edu by April 15th, 2015.
