Recently, much attention has been given to the language of food in the media and in linguistics and other disciplines. In addition, a number of books concerning this topic have been published recently. Authors analyze food from various angles such as the linguistic history of culinary terms, the linguistics of food advertising and culinary arts programs, the linguistic components of recipes, menus, labels, restaurant reviews, the discourse of food production and consumption, and the comparison of cooking and dining practices across cultures. The ILA invites submissions that explore these and other connections between linguistics & food.

Topics may include (but are not limited to) the following:

- Food(s) as metaphor
- Culinary arts and the media
- Fusion cuisine and language contact/change
- Modern constructs of the language of dining
- Food on the internet
- Anthropological linguistic studies on language and food
- Food and religion
- Food, language, class, identity

We also invite individual papers/posters on other areas of linguistics. Proposals also may be submitted for 90-minute panels. Each individual/panel presentation should last no more than 30 minutes, including time for questions and discussion.

Name, institutional affiliation, mailing address, and phone number also must be included. Proposals will be blind-reviewed for quality and originality.
