From Ryan Thomas Adams: I am writing to request additional papers for a panel at the Society for Applied Anthropology meetings in March 2015. There is some room remaining on a panel that was begun by a group of us working on an edited volume related to environmental anthropology. The panel examines the intersection of environmental anthropology and food studies. It should be an interesting group and a productive forum for considering these topics. The SfAA’s have extended the deadline for panel submissions to October 31st. If you would be interested in having a paper included in this panel, please send me an abstract by October 24th. If you are uncertain whether your work would fit, I am glad to exchange messages with you or speak over the phone to see if your idea would fit.
Here is a preliminary idea of the panel proposal (subject to change, depending on the interest this call generates).
“Food production/subsistence has long been the central axis of the field and though these days the classic cultural ecology work documenting diverse subsistence patterns has given way to the other kinds of interests such as environmental justice and conservation, there remains strong interest and attention in the field to food issues-such as local food movements, biotechnology politics, hunting cultures, the viability of food production for a growing population and food safety, as well as water security.”
