Food in Popular Culture

Primary tabs

Call for papers: 

Food in Popular Culture Area

 

For information on PCA, please visit: http://www.pcaaca.org

 

The Food in Popular Culture area is soliciting papers dealing with any aspect of Popular Culture as it pertains to food and drink. Possible topics include:

 

  • Genre cookbooks
  • Food or drink in literature
  • Dietary trends/fads
  • Food or drink in television, film, or other media
  • Advertising/marketing history for food or drink
  • Dining trends over time
  • Regional or area-specific foods

 

Papers from independent scholars and graduate students are welcome. PCA encourages works in progress and all are encouraged to engage in scholarly discourse outside of areas in which they may normally work. For example, in Food in Popular Culture we have had theoretical mathematicians, physicists, and museum personnel present papers. (Yes!) Where else can you attend a conference with such diversity?

 

 

Proposals are submitted at https://conference.pcaaca.org

 

Presentations should not exceed 15 minutes. Panels are typically made up of 3-4 individuals and each session lasts 1½ hour with adequate time for questions and discussion.
