Call For Proposals: Feminist Food Studies

Canadian Scholars is considering publishing a volume that will explore the emergent area of feminist food studies, and food and eating through a feminist, intersectional framework. The editors seek chapter proposals that examine feminist epistemologies, methodologies and pedagogies, in addition to empirical work that interrogates the complex relationships between production, consumption, and embodiment as these are shaped by temporal, socio-historical contexts, which produce overlapping marginal and privileged social identities.

Possible areas for submission include:
  • Intersectionality as a methodological approach or as method in food studies
  • Theorizing food and intersectionality through social identities such as race, ethnicity, gender, social class, age, sexualities, body size, able-bodiedness, nationality
  • Feminist Intersectional pedagogies in food studies
  • Food and femininities / masculinities
  • Embodiment including fat studies, or critical ‘obesity’ studies
  • Health as an embodied social and food practices
  • Ecofeminist perspectives and critical animal studies
  • Indigenous food systems and relationships
  • Material feminism
  • Food systems
  • Food security and food sovereignty
  • Women and agriculture / farming
The co-editors B. Parker, J. Brady, E. Power and S. Belyea welcome individual and co-authored proposals and chapters from both established and emerging scholars, including graduate students. Expected length of abstract: 200-250 words. Deadline: February 28, 2017. Expected length of final chapter: 8000 words. Proposed deadline for full chapters: June 30, 2017.
