With the common interest in food culture and academic exchange, we are glad to have Université François Rabelais de Tours as our local host co-organizing the 2015 Conference on Chinese Food Culture in the beautiful city of Tours. Making use of this opportunity, we have the theme on the comparative studies of Chinese and European food culture in order to enhance the understanding of food as a kind of cultural exchange in the global context.
Therefore, we have accepted papers which provide a rich ethnographic/historical description and analysis of Chinese and European food as a kind of cultural exchange and how they interact with the social and political complexities in specific cultural contexts. The conference is intended to be interdisciplinary and we welcome different disciplines, such as anthropology, sociology, history, and gender studies.
