60 years of FDV: the Biennial Conference on Food and Communication

Every two years, the Biennial Conference on Food and Communication brings together scholars that work on the intersection of food and communication. The first conference was held in Edinburgh, UK, 6-7 September 2018. The second conference will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, 15-17 September 2021.

Food is a key means through which we construct and represent ourselves discursively.
Food features as a powerful cultural signifier, often evoking associations with issues of
gender, class, race and identity. Food-related activities, such as grocery shopping, meal
preparation and eating, along with the public and private spaces in which these activities occur, provide the basis for many of our complex daily communicative practices. Food also is located at the core of many of the most challenging social issues of our time, often manifested in oppressive relations of inequality, and in the placement of food at the center of calls for social justice.
