NeMLA 2023 - CFP

“Representations of Food in Italian and Italian-American Literature and Cinema

Culinary traditions within communities and families are often the most resilient. Food can serve as a solid way to bond but also as a clear marker of differences between someone and their neighbor. These traditions and representations of culinary identity can also be a liminal space between cultures. Food can also be seen as a disease, a remedy, or a metaphor for one’s freedom or freedom to choose.

We invite papers that focus on the representation of food in the context of Italian and/or Italian-American film and literature, discussions of culinary identity, culinary alienation, and food as a metaphor for freedom, belonging, or exclusion.

Please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words online at this link:
