Call for Papers

Dear Colleague,

We are pleased share with you the Call for Papers for the Eleventh International Conference on Food Studies, Aarhus University, Copenhagen, Denmark, 28–30 October 2021.

The Food Studies Research Network is brought together around a common interest to explore new possibilities for sustainable food production and human nutrition, and associated impacts of food systems on culture. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. As a Research Network, we are defined by our scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.

The Eleventh International Conference on Food Studies features research addressing the following annual themes and special focus:

2021 Special Focus—Making Sense from Taste: Quality, Context, Community


Plenary Speakers

The Seventeenth International Conference on Environmental, Cultural, Economic & Social Sustainability will feature plenary sessions by some of the world’s leading thinkers and innovators in the field.

Reimagining the Scholarly Conference

Our mission is to provide a safe, sustainable, and accessible way for us to come together and interact as a Research Network. We are taking on these challenges by offering a blended conference experience, with session types explicitly designed to make the most of both online and place-based social knowledge processes. We are trying to move away from the either/or of place-based or online conferences. And at the same time be ready for the possibility of place based cancelation due to COVID-19. This way we build for our Research Network Members resilient spaces for communication, engagement, and participation.

The important message — the conference will happen!

We are moving to bring conference presentations into the digital era. All presenters, in-person or online, will be given personal Presenter Pages:

  • Linked to your profile page on CGScholar.com
  • Displaying abstract summary
  • Thematic connection to panelists and peers
  • Ability to add digital media: video, sound, other files.

You do not need to commit either to a place-based or virtual presentation at the time of submission. You can present both ways, or change your mode of the presentation if your preferences change.

And all content will be displayed online.

This way we build for our Research Network Members flexible, and at the same time resilient, spaces for communication, engagement, and participation.


Important Dates

We welcome the submission of proposals at any time of the year. All proposals will be reviewed within two to four weeks of submission. Again, you do not need to commit either to a place-based or online presentation at the time of submission. You can present both ways, or change your mode of the presentation if your preferences change.
