Meeting Description: Food for Thought: Exploring the Relationship between LGBTQ+ Identities and Linguistic Representations of Culinary Practices

Food is an integral part of our everyday lives, just like language. Both are thus highly intertwined with notions of identity. This panel aims at bringing together research on the (de)construction of LGBTQ+ identities through food discourses of various types (including, but by no means limited to cookbooks, food blogs, advertisements and literary texts as well as TV shows/movies in which food plays a prominent role). Possible topics include: the notions of ‘camp cuisine’ and ‘pride food’, transgender foods, the relationship between food and sexual desire, and food practices as a means of creating a sense of identity/community.
Linguistic Subfield: Discourse Analysis; Sociolinguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics
