2021 Biennial Food & Communication Conference

Discourses on the Future of Food


Every two years, the Biennial Conference on Food and Communication brings together scholars that work on the intersection of food and communication. The first conference was held in Edinburgh, UK, 6-7 September 2018. The second conference will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, 15-17 September 2021.


The conference will take place in-person if traveling is possible, with some remote/online coverage. If traveling is not possible for some participants due to health concerns related to COVID-19, we will make it possible for those individuals to participate remotely (online).


Associated costs Fee

Fee for conference attendance is 120 EUR and will cover the cost of food and drink during the conference plus materials.

An optional conference dinner costs 35 EUR (three courses of local dishes and local wine). Dinner will take place at Gostilna na Gradu.

Travel and accommodation costs will need to be covered by participants themselves.


We encourage scholars from around the world to respond to the call, and we particularly welcome work from geographical areas where research into food and communication is newly emerging. We also encourage new and early career scholars to submit their work. In addition, or as alternatives, to producing traditional texts to present their research findings and ideas, participants are welcome to use multimodal forms of presentation.
