The 2010 European Summer School in Cultural Studies will be devoted to the issues that radiate from food, eating and cooking. We invite papers that consider these issues from all perspectives, and at all scales, from the local to the global.

Proposals should be sent to the contact at the local partner institute by the deadline of Monday 15 March 2010. Both doctoral students and junior researchers (post-docs) are invited to apply for the summer school. Doctoral students and junior researchers who are accepted for the summer school are eligible for ESSCS scholarships. These scholarships cover travel and accommodation costs up to a set amount.
