Publishing and presenting are two fundamental skills, yet as graduate students we rarely get guidance in acquiring them. Want to write your first book review but aren’t sure how it works? Never submitted a paper for peer review but know you need to learn how? Join the Graduate Association for Food Studies and get advice and help from other graduate students interested in food studies scholarship. You can also be a peer reviewer and share your knowledge, as well present at the annual conference. Build your CV as well as your knowledge of the pragmatics of publishing–and meet other grad students interested in food studies, from all over the world.
The Graduate Association for Food Studies (GAFS) is an interdisciplinary academic community founded in the spring of 2014 with the goals of connecting graduate students who are interested in food and promoting their exceptional work. The Association also publishes the Graduate Journal of Food Studies, and will hold its first 3-day conference for graduate students to present and discuss their research in October 2015 (more details here).
