Meeting Description: The Department of Interpreting and Translation (DIT) of the University of Bologna at Forlì presents the First International Conference on Food and Culture in Translation. The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for discussion in a relatively neglected field of research: the translation of food language and culture. The conference will take place May 22-24 2014, at the University's Summer Residence located in the hamlet of Bertinoro, in the hills just above Forlì, Italy.

The Conference will address a range of critically important issues and themes relating to Food as a cultural as well as social phenomenon that travels across languages, across cultures and across time and space. Plenary speakers include some of the leading thinkers in these areas as:

Michael Cronin: Full professor at the School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Dublin City University.

Joanne Hollows: Reader at the College of Arts and Science of the School of Arts & Humanities, Nottingham Trent University.
