Junctures: The Journal of Thematic Dialogue invites submissions on the theme “food.”
Nau mai e ka hua e hora nei.
Here are the fruits laid out before us.
This is an opening line of a karakia, a Māori incantation that acknowledges food, the places it comes from and the role it plays in communities.
It reminds us implicitly that food is both necessary for survival as well as being culturally mediated. This issue of Junctures invites contributions that reflect on the centrality of food in culture and society from both these positions. Deliberately broad in scope, we call for a range of submissions that, taken collectively, can propose a hermeneutics as well as an axiology of food that resonates across the hard sciences, humanities, visual culture, social sciences, law, education, and medicine.
Junctures invites submissions from authors on the theme of food, whether from the hard sciences, humanities, visual, social sciences, law, education or medicine. Junctures encourages discussion across boundaries, whether these are disciplinary, geographic, cultural, social or economic. Junctures accepts narratives, commentaries and interventions that sit outside academia.
