Call for Papers: Special Issue on Food at the Fair
This special issue of Food, Culture & Society will examine how fairs and expositions – at local,
regional, national, and international levels anytime from the nineteenth century to the present –
reflect and shape perceptions of food production and consumption for mass audiences. It will
consider the perspectives of fair organizers, publicists, exhibitors, concessionaires, restaurateurs,
and consumers in constructing and experiencing the diversity of food cultures on the fairgrounds.
We are editing an anthology about the origins of the modern food system, focused on the period between the 1870s and 1930s. The contributors already onboard all work at the intersection of food and environmental history.
