The Graduate Association for Food Studies (GAFS) is the official graduate student caucus of the Association for the Study of Food and Society (ASFS). GAFS is an interdisciplinary academic community founded in the spring of 2014 with the goals of connecting graduate students interested in food and promoting their exceptional work. The Association publishes the digital Graduate Journal of Food Studies and hosts the Future of Food Studies conference for graduate students to present, discuss, and network. Our first conference took place in 2015 at Harvard University.
Rooted in a network of senior graduate students pursuing food studies scholarship in a rigorous fashion, the Graduate Association for Food Studies provides peer-to-peer advice, support, and professional development. Join GAFS to build your CV as well as your knowledge of peer reviewing, book reviewing (apply here to join our peer review board or to review a book), editing, and publishing. As part of GAFS, you can meet other grad students interested in food studies from all over the world.
