Call for Papers
'FOOD IN ZONES OF CONFLICT'
32^nd ICAF Conference, 19-21 August 2011, The Hague (Netherlands)
The International Commission on the Anthropology of Food and Nutrition
(ICAF) and the Modern East Asia Research Centre (MEARC) at Leiden
University invite proposals for papers exploring the theme of food, diet
and food problems in places suffering conflicts in any geographic area
of the world, regarding both the present day and the past. Possible
topics might include (but should not be limited to) food security in
conflict affected areas, food aid and special nutritional needs of
people in refugee camps, long-term consequences of warfare on food and
diet, food as a weapon of choice in war, as well as geographic, ethnic
and religious factors involved in access to food in times of conflict.
We aim for this event to be truly _cross-disciplinary_ and hope that the
theme will attract social, cultural, biological and nutritional
anthropologists, as well as archaeologists, historians,
agriculturalists, sociologists, dietitians, geographers, representatives
of aid agencies and others.
The conference will be hosted by Leiden University College The Hague
(www.lucthehague.nl <http://www.lucthehague.nl>), and will be organised
jointly by ICAF and MEARC. See the websites of ICAF (www.icafood.eu) and
