Food media have become exponentially popular throughout the 21st century, with growth in the production and consumption of digital ‘food porn,’ cookbooks and content in the food blog- and vlogospheres. Across these diverse formats, food media have long been recognized as artifacts that reference culturally- and historically-specific ideals of gender at the same time that they offer instructional food pedagogies. For instance, scholars have pointed out the links between food preparation rituals and the performance of gender from the hypermasculinization of barbeque to the feminized daintiness of baking desserts, and from ideas about the gendered organization of food labor to the embodied pleasures of food porn.

Sweet Home Chicago? Rethinking Blues Literature
Chicago, IL 3 January – 6 January 2019
What is the current state of Blues Literature? It has been well over thirty years since Houston Baker Jr.’s Blues, Ideology, and Afro-American Literature: A Vernacular Theory (1984) put blues back on the critical map. Much has changed since then. Even with innovative interventions in the field (Davis, Bolden, Gussow, McGinley), blues literature has fallen out of vogue within academic circles. This panel seeks to rethink blues literature's critical value.
