15th Annual Assembly of the Canadian Association for Food Studies (CAFS)

Everyone at the Table


May 31 – June 2 (pre-conference May 30) London, Ontario

The Canadian Association for Food Studies (CAFS) will host its fifteenth annual assembly at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario from Sunday, May 31 – Tuesday, June 2, 2020 (pre-conference Saturday, May 30, 2020) in conjunction with the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Founded in 2005, CAFS promotes critical, multidisciplinary scholarship in the broad area of food systems, food culture, and food justice, including but not limited to: food policy, production, distribution, consumption, and waste. CAFS members are drawn from an array of disciplines across the sciences, humanities, and beyond. CAFS membership is open to academics, activists, students, policymakers, community workers, professionals, practitioners, and others interested in food studies research and practice. CAFS recognizes the need for transdisciplinary research on food issues both within and outside of academia in response to societal needs. The conference is an opportunity to share knowledge in a number of domain areas such as informing and critiquing policy, assessing and mobilizing the outcomes of community-based work, and demonstrating the health, social, economic, political, cultural, spiritual, and environmental impacts of food systems.
