Opportunity for UCLA Students: Present a Research Poster at “Dishing: Food, Feminism, and the Way We Eat”

The UCLA Center for the Study of Women (CSW) invites research poster submissions – completed, in-progress, or new – from graduate and undergraduate students for display at our 2016-2017 Food Studies Lecture Series, Dishing: Food, Feminism, and The Way We Eat. More information regarding the series can be found here. Events in this series include:

  • Talking Trash: Oral Histories of Food In/Security from the Margins of a Dumpster by Dr. Rachel Vaughn, October 26, 2016
  • Delicious: The History of Monosodium Glutamate and Umami, the Fifth Taste Sensation by Dr. Sarah Tracy, November 29, 2016
  • Black Milk: Colonial Foodways and Intimate Imperialism by Dr. Diana Garvin, April 2017

Selected posters may also be displayed at CSW’s annual Thinking Gender conference, February 9-10, 2017.

We welcome research posters that explore issues related to food, foodways, and the role of food in culture, history, and society. All disciplinary perspectives and research methods are welcome, but, in particular, we encourage submissions that explore relationships between food and gender.

Two opportunities are available to students:
