CFP: Association for the Study of Food and Society Student Paper Prizes

Calls for Submissions

The Association for the Study of Food and Society (ASFS) invites current undergraduate and graduate students to submit papers for the William Whit (undergraduate) and Alex McIntosh (graduate) prizes, respectively. These awards recognize students’ contributions to the field of food studies. There will be one award each for an undergraduate student paper and a graduate student paper. Beginning in 2020, these papers may be single authored or multi-authored. ASFS welcomes submissions on a wide range of issues relating to food, society and culture, and from the diverse disciplinary and trans-disciplinary fields that ASFS encompasses.

The author of each award-winning paper will receive:

  • $500 cash prize;
  • Students who will be attending the conference are encouraged to apply for a student travel grant.

Please note:

  • If it is a multi-authored paper, all authors must be students at the time the paper was written;
  • In the case of multi-authored papers, the award check will be sent to the first-named author.

The annual deadline for submission is February 1, 2021, and requires electronic submissions only.
