The Beer Culture subject area represents a growing and dynamic interdisciplinary field of study that can be approached from multiple academic and creative directions. This quickly-expanding subject area explores issues of authenticity, place, history, identity, gender, race, class, the maker movement, the job market, visual design, rhetoric, social media, law and ethics, business and entrepreneurship, marketing, and community.

Proposals are requested for papers that identify and discuss any aspects of beer, its producers, its consumers, the communities and identities it inspires and maintains, and/or its social, cultural, historical, and economic impact.

We particularly encourage the submission of papers dealing with beer and the environment, sustainability in brewing, brewing public policy, the economic impact of brewing, craft beer and gentrification, market pressures in beer culture (including brewery closures and mergers), beer and the family, brewing political economy, beer journalism, beer museums, #MeToo and issues of diversity, inclusion and equity related to beer culture, and legal issues in beer culture.

Please note that this is an academic conference, and we cannot accept proposals for sales pitches of specific breweries, books or other publications, events, or products and services.

 

The Beer Culture Area does not accept undergraduate submissions.
