NEPCA CFP: Food and Foodways

The Food, Foodways and Culture area of the Northeastern Popular/American Culture Association is inviting paper submissions for its Fall 2016 conference at Keene State College in Keene, NH from October 21-22, 2016.

This area explores intersections among food, eating, and popular culture. Possible topics of interest include the following:

  • The history of food and dining
  • Depictions of food and dining in popular culture
  • Connections among food, eating and identity
  • The history and culture of restaurants
  • Food festivals and cooking competitions
  • Cookbooks as popular culture
  • The Food Network and celebrity chefs

Works of fiction and memoirs will not be considered unless they are part of a broader, analytical presentation.

Proposals for both individual papers and full panels are invited.  Papers should appeal to a broad audience.

The deadline for submission of paper proposals is June 15, 2016. Please use the NEPCA Paper Proposal Submission Form on NEPCA’s website:
