The papers in this panel investigate the ways that writers, readers, cooks, and consumers image and imagine food in fiction, film, memoir, poetry, cookbooks, and blogs. Food can both connect and divide individuals, communities, and cultures. The papers in this panel will explore the interconnectedness of food, text, and image. Presentations in this session, for example, might examine the material ways that we represent food in photographs and film or the ways that food forms and contributes to the public images of individuals and cultures.
Please email abstracts by June 1, 2013 to mhess@gsu.edu
