Austin and Food Studies

The International Conference on Food Studies travels to Austin, Texas in 2013. Home to a thriving and vibrant local and slow foods community, Austin is a leader in sustainable food production. A city rich with a dedicated community of locavores and slow food advocates, boasting some of the country's longest running farmers markets, Austin is an ideal location for the discussion of all the dimensions of food studies including agricultural, environmental, nutritional, health, social, economic and cultural perspectives on food.

We look forward to receiving your proposal and hope you will join us in Austin!
