Deadline for Annual Submission: February 1.
Electronic submissions ONLY!
The Association for the Study of Food and Society invites current undergraduate and
graduate (single authors only) to submit a paper for the William Whit
(undergraduate) and Alex McIntosh (graduate) prizes, respectively. These awards
recognize students' contributions to the field of food studies. There will be
one award each for an undergraduate student paper and a graduate student paper.
ASFS welcomes submissions on a wide range of issues relating to food, society
and culture, and from the diverse disciplinary and trans-disciplinary fields
that ASFS encompasses. The author of each award-winning paper will receive:
payment of annual
membership and conference fees to be applied to the following year if student
is not attending in the current year
a free banquet ticket
for the coming year's annual meeting or the following year's if a ticket has
already been purchased or the student is not attending the conference in the
current year; and
the opportunity to
present prize-winning papers at an ASFS/AFHVS conference. Winners who wish to
present the year they receive their award must have submitted a conference
abstract in that same year.
