The CFC is excited to co-host the first ever Student Symposium with the Canadian Association for Food Studies (CAFS) this June at Concordia! Join in-person on campus or online, June 17 and 18.

Submit your proposal by April 30th.

Founded in 2005, CAFS promotes critical, multidisciplinary scholarship in the broad area of food systems, food culture, and food justice. CAFS membership is open to academics, activists, students, policy makers, community workers, professionals, practitioners, and others interested in food studies research and practice.

The Student Symposium – Sustaining Shared Food Futures – thematically aligns with Congress 2024 from June 12-21, 2024. In this way, the student symposium is designed to align with and expand upon the dialogues anticipated at Congress 2024.

The CAFS Symposium offers emerging scholars the opportunity to gather meaningful feedback and mentorship on their research from thought leaders in their respective fields, while fostering a sense of community. It’s an opportunity for more established scholars or practitioners to mentor and for emerging food scholars to develop their research, presentation and knowledge dissemination skills.
