The Department of English Linguistics (Prof. Dr. Susanne Mühleisen) cordially invites you to attend the international conference "Talking about Food: Local & Global Contexts", which will take place on April 27 and 28 at the University of Bayreuth (room S120 in GWI).

Scholars from different linguistic disciplines will address the relationship between language and food with a particular focus on food discourse(s) in regional contexts, globalization, talking about food on social media and mediated food discourse in general, as well as the connection between food, language, and identity.
