Looking for participants to organize a panel on Food/Food Culture in Asia
Location:	Massachusetts, United States

My name is Stephanie Assmann and I'm based at Tohoku University, Sendai,
Japan as a lecturer. I am looking for participants to organize a panel on
Food/Food Culture in Asia for the Annual Meeting of the Association for
Asian Studies which will take place in Boston from March 22 - 25, 2007. I
am currently conducting research on the topic of Slow Food in Japan.
Papers that address food and food culture in Asian countries either from a
sociological/anthropological angle or from a historical or philosophical
point of view are very welcome. Possible topics I could imagine are for
example local food cultures versus the emergence of globalizing food
cultures, the increasing popularity of Asian foods in countries outside
Asia, gender and/or social (in)equality in relation to food, food as
depicted in art and literature. These are just some broad ideas and I am
very open for other topics and suggestions. Anyone who is working on
Food/Food Culture in Asian countries and would be interested to join this
panel, please contact me at StAssmann at aol.com until 2 August 2006.
