Oh well, maybe I'll try and submit a paper for next year's do....on "food and language"

There are two other upcoming events also

Calls for papers:

Tasting histories: Food and Drink Cultures through the Ages - a research symposium, graduate workshop and public conference February 27-March 1, 2009 Robert Mondavi Institute, University of California, Davis, California
We are interested in receiving papers that explore critical issues in food and drink production and consumption that relate to the body and that deploy a world historical lens.

CFP: Food, Culture, and the Law - a call for papers
The field of food studies has grown enormously over the last decade, as evidenced in part by the steadily increasing number of academics and professionals in the humanities, social and nutrition sciences, culinary arts, and hospitality studies who have become engaged in cross-disciplinary conversations about food. Operating in tandem with the explosion of popular fascination with food, these conversations have been joined of late by academics, attorneys, and activists who are particularly concerned with the question of how our relationship to food is, has been, and should be, mediated through law. In response to this emerging area of inquiry, we are soliciting both conference papers and publishable essays that integrate multidisciplinary scholarship in food studies with legal scholarship related to food in existing fields such as agricultural, constitutional, criminal, administrative, tort, intellectual property, and international trade law.
