The interdisciplinary character of food studies has not only connected distinct theories and practices, but also has provided us with tools to rethink on existence. Food studies have become increasingly sophisticated when it is thought and studied in various disciplines such as philosophy, sociology, cultural studies, anthropology, history, literary theory, media and communication studies, political science, and psychology. Our ultimate aim in this workshop is to investigate the deeper theoretical underpinnings of the connections between ontology and epistemology, nature and culture, material and symbolic, personal and political, self and other, fear and joy, anxiety and pleasure, experience and meaning, representation and performance, and senses, aesthetics and ethics. Therefore, papers attempt to discuss theoretical questions concerning food and taste, cooking and eating. In other words, the workshop tries to articulate food issues with either a particular theory and/or theorist(s) or a general philosophical theme suggested below.
