Call for Proposals

This Seminar invites papers on religion, food, and eating in North America. We are particularly interested in studies that look beyond the United States to include Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Research that highlights themes such as identity, control, boundary, community practice, theory, and cultural constructions of food versus nutritional realities are all welcome. Research may focus on any religion, though studies of Islam, Hinduism, Native American traditions, and Chinese religions in America are especially welcome.


This Seminar aims to bring together diverse scholars who work on different faith traditions and use different methodologies, but all have a shared interest in the topic of food, eating, and religion in America.

Anonymity of Review Process

Proposals are anonymous to Chairs and Steering Committee Members until after final acceptance or rejection.
