Meeting Description
Various cultures live in the Mediterranean. Various civilizations have
lived in Turkey and Cyprus. Also, the immigrants brought their own food to
Turkey and Cyprus. Sephardim came to the Ottoman Empire after their
expulsion from Spain in 1492. Additionally, Ashkenazim settled in Turkey.
Cyprus has had Turkish, Greek, Jewish, Armenian, Italian, and British
inhabitants for centuries.

In this symposium, we wish to focus on the food culture of various cultural
groups that live in Turkey, Cyprus, and in other Mediterranean countries,
and investigate the relationship between the food culture and cognition in
different fields, such as Linguistics, Anthropology, Education, Translation
Studies, History, Literature, and Jewish Studies. We expect to receive the
150 - 250 word abstracts of your presentations and 5 (five) keywords for
your presentations until March/01/2008. 20 (twenty) minutes will be given
for each presentation, and 10 (ten) minutes will be left for questions.
Papers of the accepted abstracts should be written in the APA style. Papers
should be submitted at the end of the symposium.
