Many places in the world have been contact zones, breeding grounds for food encounters and hybrids, seeding conversations that end up composing the narratives of identity that bring food and place together. This international conference brings together scholarship about food within the local, regional, national, global, and transnational contexts, bringing the themes of heritage, hybridity, and locality into focus.
Join us for a dynamic program that features a keynote address by Sidney Mintz and paper presentations by scholars from across the globe. You are welcome to contact the conference production team with any questions. The Food Heritage, Hybridity, and Locality Conference is made possible by the generous support of our co-sponsors.
This conference is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
**Interest in attending this conference has exceeded expectations. Regrettably we must suspend registration for Days 1 and 2 of the program. Registration for the keynote and for the field trip on October 24 remains open.**
