“Food and History: Health, Culture, Tourism and Identity”, date limite 10 janvier 2006.


Du 09 December 2005au 10 January 2006
de 00h00 à 00h00

This international, interdisciplinary conference, organised by the Faculty of Health and Department of Humanities at the University of Central Lancashire (GB), seeks to explore these issues in original ways and in historical perspective through plenary and parallel sessions. It brings together methodologies drawn from the humanities and the medical sciences to interpret and challenge current myths about the history, production and consumption of food and to explore the roles of taste, texture, and technology in constituting id entities and marketing experiences in this sphere. Within this framework a strand dealing with the relationships between tourism, food and history will run through the conference, under the auspices of the International Commission for the History of Travel and Tourism.

They invite papers which address physiological, psychological and political aspects of food, health, history, tourism and identity, as well as examining issues relating to food production, regulation and marketing, and analysing representations of and responses to food, health, history and tourism in cultural practices and media outlets, whether these focus on literature, film, television or the arts.

Participants are encouraged to interpret these proposals generously and to adopt interdisciplinary approaches, as befits the traditions of this University of Central Lancashire conference series.

The language of the conference will be English
Abstracts of 2-300 words should be sent as e-mail attachments in the first instance to the conference administrator, Liz Kelly(ejkelly@uclan.ac.uk)
Deadline for submission: 10 January 2006
