We are keen to receive papers from any researchers, across disciplines, which address the aestheticised consumption of food, community stories centered around food, artworks which incorporate food, and spaces which accommodate the sharing of food. We hope that the interdisciplinary nature of this symposium will encourage contributions from PGRs working across different periods, themes and mediums.
