The 2013 Third International Conference on Food Studies: An Interdisciplinary Conference, travels to the University of Texas, Austin, Texas on 15 October 2013, where local and sustainable food production is a cornerstone of the Austenite culture. A city rich with a dedicated community of locavores, some of the country’s longest running farmers markets, and numerous slow foods advocate groups, 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. Plenary speakers include some of the leading thinkers in these areas, as well as numerous paper, colloquium and workshop presentations.

The Conference will address a range of critically important issues and themes relating to the Food Studies community. Proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia are invited, addressing food studies through one of the following themes:
• Food Production and Sustainability
• Food, Nutrition and Health
• Food Politics, Policies and Cultures

The final deadline for proposal submission is 15 August 2013. Please visit for more information on submitting your proposal, future deadlines, and registering for the conference.

Virtual participation is available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person. Proposals for virtual presentations may be submitted at any time, up to the start of the conference. All conference registrants (in-person and virtual) may also submit their written papers for publication in the refereed Food Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal.
