International Eating: Women’s Global Food Stories

Of late, many women food writers are recording their global food stories, whether they are making sense divergent cultural identities at home or recording their culinary adventures abroad. This panel centers on women’s food writing, looking specifically at stories that emphasize women’s international food experiences. Papers should focus on women’s global food stories, and they may explore different kinds of food writing (fiction, memoir, cookbooks, etc.).

Please send abstracts of 250-500 words to Caroline Smith at cjsmith7@gwu.edu no later than September 30, 2011.

Please include with your abstract:
