Film I: Food in Film, Food as Film

This panel looks to explore how cinema represents food, eating, and cooking
and how these culinary components also can become film themselves. The
popularity of food television and the growing presence of food, cooking,
and eating in film have pushed for such a consideration. Papers may
analyze such topics as food & film narrative, the use of cinematic
techniques to present food visually, how filmmakers employ food to
foreground issues of nation, identity, economics, etc., or the use of food
as metaphor in cinema.

If you are interested in participating, please send a 250-word abstract to
panel chair Michelle Parke at by April 15, 2008.
