Volume 30 - 2013 - Call for papers
Food, nutrition and culture
The topic for
volume 30 of Antropologia Portuguesa
will be “Food, Nutrition and Culture”.
“We are what
we eat”. Food goes far beyond a daily biological need to obtain energy and
nutrients for growth and health. Our food choices are related to social and
cultural experiences. What we eat depends on the political, economic and
geographic framework of food production. Diet played a fundamental role in
human evolution as well as in the social organization of prehistoric societies.
Lately there has been a great interest in the understanding of the role of food
in the etiology of some modern human chronic diseases.
Antropologia Portuguesa invites submissions of manuscripts on topics such as
food and health, growth, evolution of human diet, paleodietary analyses, food
and social, cultural and economic factors, social representation of food, food
as medicines, food and globalization, symbolic and cognitive aspects of food,
food industry and ethic and ecological problems, among others. Manuscripts should
be prepared in the form of an article, an interview or a book review, according
to the editorial norms and must be
submitted through the journal online platform (htpp://iduc.uc.pt/antropologiaportuguesa).
