2nd Edition Conference

FOOD & SOCIETY International Conference

The Annual Food and Society Conference is organized by the Asia-Pacific Food Studies Network. This second international conference captures a broad audience who has a genuine interest in food, be it a research object or simply an authentic passion: we open our doors to chefs, scientists, writers, social scientists, food historians, industry professionals, writers,journalists, foodies, passionate amateurs, and students. Presenters in social science and humanities are especially welcome as well as scholars in other fields who believe that inter-disciplinary research is the key for scientific progress and who are keen to work hand-in-hand with stakeholders from hospitality and food industry.
