The Meaning of Food: Interdisciplinary Conference on Representations of Food in the Arts & Humanities

Thursday, March 26 to Saturday, March 28, 2020
Greensboro, NC

Santiago Daydí-Tolson organized EIGHT “Interdisciplinary and Multicultural Food Representation in Literature, Film, and the Other Arts” conferences at University of Texas San Antonio from 1998 to 2014 from which this conference stems. Claudia, Alison, and Nina met at the last conference at UTSA and when Santiago said he was ready to pass the conference torch on, the three of us decided to pick it up. Claudia is at High Point University, Alison is at Wake Forest and Nina is at Elon University, making downtown Greensboro the perfect central hub for The Meaning of Food conference. The first biennial conference was held in 2018, and we look forward to another engaging symposium in 2020!
