EASA Food Network Award for a Postgraduate Student Paper in the Anthropology of Food

After the last year’s enthusiasm for this new initiative, we are very happy to announce the call for the 2nd EASA Award for a Postgraduate Student Paper in the Anthropology of Food. This award has been set up by the EASA Anthropology of Food network in collaboration with the EASA journal, Social Anthropology/ Anthropologie Sociale, to encourage anthropological research into food among emerging scholars at European universities. Masters and early doctoral students in anthropology, or closely related disciplines, who are involved in the study of food are invited to submit their papers for consideration. The submissions will be evaluated by a panel of three scholars engaged with the Anthropology of Food: Dr Gaia Cottino (The American University of Rome), Dr Petr Jehlicka (The Czech Academy of Sciences), and Dr Jakob Klein (Chair of the SOAS Food Studies Centre, University of London).

The winning paper will receive feedback from the judges and network conveners, and will be accepted for review and considered for publication in Social Anthropology/Anthropologie Sociale. Moreover, the information about the award-winning paper and its author will be promoted within and beyond the EASA Food Network.
