3rd BSA FOOD STUDY GROUP INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE: ‘FOOD AND SOCIETY’

Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd July, 2012

The British Library Conference Centre, London

Confirmed plenary speakers:

Janet Poppendieck, Hunter College, City University of New York, USA and Alan Warde, University of Manchester, UK

Early booking deadline 24th June 2012 – don’t miss out!

Following the phenomenal success of previous years, the Food Study Group Conference ‘Food and Society 2012’ is back for a 3rd year and this year looks set to be bigger and better than ever!

This 3rd international Conference will look to further examine the role of food in contemporary society through a sociological lens, examining the empirical questions raised by the relation of food to social and intergenerational inequalities. It will also explore the theoretical issues of food as an item of consumption, cultural symbol and commodity, as well as the ever-present environmental concerns and critical implications for food systems and eating practices.

These key themes will be analysed and discussed over 2 days and whether you are an academic, a practitioner, a policy maker or another research user, we would encourage everyone to come together and share in what is sure to be another fascinating event.

The early booking deadline is coming up and registration will soon close. Book now through our website for as little £155 (48% discount), or if you are a concessionary member £70!

To book online and to find out more about speakers and the programme, visit our website: http://www.britsoc.co.uk/events/food.aspx

Given the emphasis on social scientific approaches, and to enable the committee to select and group papers appropriately, abstract authors are asked to indicate, where relevant, the theoretical and methodological approach in addition to the substantive focus.

Please direct any academic enquiries to r.oconnell@ioe.ac.uk and any administrative enquiries to events@britsoc.org.uk
