Just Food 21 Special Issue CFP: Graduate Conference Proceedings

Are you a graduate student presenting a paper at this year’s Just Food conference?

The Graduate Journal of Food Studies invites you to submit your paper for a special Just Food Conference Proceedings Graduate issue, to be published in the peer-reviewed Graduate Journal of Food Studies.

The Graduate Journal of Food Studies is the official student journal of ASFS. It is an international student-run and refereed platform dedicated to encouraging and promoting interdisciplinary food scholarship at the graduate level. Published open-access on a rolling basis, the Journal is a platform for scholars to showcase exceptional academic research and writing, including peer-reviewed original research papers and short form pieces which include creative writing, photo essays and fieldnotes. Its current editorial team is especially committed to featuring anti-racist, anti-sexist, and decolonial scholarship.

For the Just Food Conference Proceedings Graduate issue, food-related research submissions are welcome from all fields and disciplines. In line with our publishing focus, we are seeking both research papers and short form essays.

• Short-form essays should be 750-1000 words. These can take the form of photo essays, field notes, creative writing, interviews and op-eds. While the format is more flexible, we expect that short-form pieces demonstrate original research or thought and make clear, analytical points.

Research papers should be original research which demonstrates strong theoretical and methodological work examining food related issues in a critical way, posing a clear and compelling thesis that is well argued and supported throughout the essay. These are between 4000 and 7500 words and need to include an abstract. These papers will be peer-reviewed.

Our style guidelines can be found here. Please note that only works entirely authored by students at Master’s and/or doctoral levels will be considered.

The deadline for submitting papers for this special issue is July 5, 2021 to gjfseditor@gmail.com

Journal Editor Maya Hey will be participating on the Roundtable: Listening Session: How Can Food Studies Journals Promote Food Justice? (4B2) on Saturday June 12, 11am-12.30pm. We recommend that graduates interested in publishing with us attend this session!
