The Politics of Food in the United States

Thursday, April 29, 2021 - 2:59am
Alice Béja - Lille Institute of Political Science
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 30, 2021

Food in the United States is framed by myths and stereotypes. The myth of America as a land of plenty, embodied by the “first” Thanksgiving, is far from the reality the first settlers encountered, and creates an image of harmonious relations between Native Americans and New England colonists that belies the violence of colonization. Today, the image of the “fast food nation” masks the diversity of local cuisines and the rich history of food and foodways in the US.

Playing on the SAMLA 93 conference theme of “Social Networks and Social Distance,” the Society for the Study of Southern Literature invites papers on topics relevant to questions and issues of Southern networks and distance.

We Did Not Move to the Cities to Die: The Changing Urban Indian, PAMLA (sponsored by MELUS)

updated: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021 - 12:42pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021

The publication of There There by Cheyanne/Arapaho writer Tommy Orange in 2018 and Sacred Smokes by Lakota writer Theo Van Alst in 2019 marks a shift in Indigenous stories. Unlike so many Native texts before, Oranges places his story not in Indian Country but in the urban setting of Oakland. The figure of the Urban Indian has had negative connotations within Native communities as a mark of assimilation and dilution of Indigenous culture since the figure is removed from traditional homelands and communities. Orange and other Indigenous authors, however, are publishing stories that challenge this connotation and reimagine the Urban Indian.
