Articles, Essays and Opinion Pieces
Much powerful written work on identities and social struggles does not take the form of the scholarly article or book chapter. This section will focus on the work of students, researchers, affiliates and any other writers who use unconventional and non-scholarly forms in their work on the food-identity-cultural process nexus. This section would include mainly short pieces of writing, including autobiographical writing and short essays. Pure fiction and poetry, because it is subject to very different criteria of merit form non-fictional forms – cannot be published. Examples of the work to have solicited is Rustum Koozain’s writing on food in Cape Town.
