CFP: Food Culture
Seeking 3,000-6,000-word academic analyses and informed personal experience narratives exploring how we think and talk about food in contemporary North American popular culture. Special interest in papers that examine:
- eating/not eating in television: on the Food Network, Travel Channel, morning television magazine shows, reality TV weight-loss shows, etc.
- commercials in all media for food and weight-loss programs
- internet food sub-cultures
- personal experience of food practices within a North-American culture of excess, processed food, fast food, and a global food market.
All academic approaches welcome (Communication, Discourse, Rhetoric, etc.) but the editor requests that the text be readable by a well-informed general audience rather than academic experts in the field.
Please send completed piece as MSWord document attached to your email to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 6, 2011.
