As you know (hopefully) the Food Studies Caucus will be hosting two events at the upcoming ASA Conference November 15-18, 2012 in San Juan, Puerto Rico
1 - Food Studies Caucus Social - Friday 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm - Puerto Rico Conference Center Foyer

The Food Studies Caucus is now on Facebook!
Please “like” this to follow the caucus.
Also, I encourage everyone to post and share on the page. I hope this can become a lively forum where scholars can share information on their research, CFPs, personal profiles, upcoming events, links to blogs and websites, or any interesting pieces of related information you come across.
The Food Studies Caucus will be sponsoring the following panels at the upcoming ASA Conference. Congrats! For those of you that plan to attend the conference, please consider attending these panels.
“Archives of Domesticity and Dissent: Cookbooks, Cooking Culture and the Limits of Culinary Exchange”
Christopher Farrish, Kyla Tompkins, Janet Boyd, Christine Marks, Stephen Vider
“Culinary Occupations: Migratory Identities and the Geopolitics of Public Food Consumption”
Amy Bentley, Heather Ruth Lee, John Burdick, Audrey Russek
Anyone else presenting on food related issues, please forward the panel information to me so it can be shared with all members of the caucus and the larger food studies community.
Also, both a Food Studies Caucus Reception and business meeting are in the process of being organized by a preliminary Food Studies Caucus administrative group. More details to come soon.
This is an open call for anyone interested in assisting in planning the Food Studies Caucus Events for the upcoming ASA Conference.
Two events need to be organized:
1. A First annual Food Studies Caucus business/planning meeting, which will be held each year at the ASA Conference. At this meeting we will need to plan all of the events/goals for the caucus for the coming year.
2. Food Studies Caucus Annual Reception/networking event. At such an event scholars of food will be able to meet other scholars doing similar work. I envision this being a more low key event, with perhaps some light food and an open/cash bar. (If we need to raise funding for such an event we could possibly require preregistration and charge a small fee per person, say $10 to cover the cost of food).
These two events could possibly be combined and have a planning meeting and networking event at the same time. I was thinking the first or second day of the conference. Also, the ASA informed me that they have the ability to set space aside for such events at the Caribe Hilton and may even have some limited funding for such events (depending on several factors).
I think the next step would be to brainstorm ideas via email for these events (or others) and begin to delineate tasks to anyone who is interested in helping.
Let me know.
Thanks and all the best.
