This special session invites proposals that engage with literary or cultural food studies, food novels, or other texts that depict food and eating in unconventional ways. How can we approach literary or cultural texts through the framework of food and eating and what effect does this have on the reading experience or the audience? This panel is especially interested in proposals that examine socially or politically sensitive topics and, with respect to the conference theme Post-Now, the alternative ways of reading and perceiving that the food lens can enable. Proposals should indicate your name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address, and paper title, as well as the methodologies used and the text(s) under consideration.

Proposals should not exceed 300 words and must be submitted to Maria Mothes at mmothes@uni-koblenz.de by May 10, 2022 for consideration. For more information, please visit https://www.luc.edu/mmla/convention/callforpapers/.
