The Meaning of Food: Culinary Choices as Expressions of Cultural Values
Rocky Mountain MLA, Reno, October 9-11

As increasing numbers of artists and citizens turn their attention to the
ways that our food choices convey and contest personal and cultural
values, this panel seeks papers that analyze representations of food,
food production, and/or food ritual. The panel is open to discussions of
the representation of food in fiction, non-fiction, or film or to
comparative approaches that engage with the question of the meaning of
food choices (or lack of choices).

Please email 300 word abstract by March 1 to Laura White at
