Gastronomy Summit 2022 – Call for Submissions now open
The Oxford Cultural Collective is working in partnership with Ulster University to stage Gastronomy Summit 2022, from 11th to 13th April 2022 in Belfast. This landmark event will bring together members of the global culinary community to explore and celebrate the transformative power of food, drink and hospitality.
The call for submissions of academic papers and posters opens on 1st May 2021. Submissions should focus on Summit’s overarching theme: developing food and drink destinations in ways that benefit local communities.
A key aim of Gastronomy Summit 2022 is to enable academics to share their current research, receive feedback and build research alliances that could prove useful in the future. Breaking with the established format of academic conferences the Summit will focus on innovative practice, through keynote contributions from internationally renowned chefs, writers, journalists, activists and educators. In doing so, it will encourage dialogue and partnerships between academics and practitioners.
The Summit’s tracks (themes), which should be the focus of submitted abstracts, papers and posters are:
- Food, drink and hospitality as catalysts for economic, cultural and social
regeneration in urban or rural locations
- Food, drink and hospitality as catalysts for equality and social cohesion
- Food, drink and regenerative tourism
- Food, drink and identity
- Food, drink and hospitality as catalysts for sustainable development
- Education in culinary arts and gastronomy (e.g. cultural contextualization,
links to destination development)
