The Events and Programs funded workshop “Framing SNAP: Perspectives on the Nation’s Largest, Least-loved, and Most Enduring Food Assistance Program” is now accepting abstracts. This intimate workshop explores the myriad debates about SNAP, both as a nutrition program, its long-standing rationale, and as an anti-poverty program, which it has become. In doing so, we seek to engage diverse scholarly and policy communities. We invite abstracts of no more than 750 words from researchers working out of historical, political, cultural, economic, nutritional, and ethical perspectives. Topics might include, but are not limited to:
Abstracts deadline extended to January 17, 2020. Please direct all submissions and any questions to Professor Christopher Bosso (firstname.lastname@example.org). Those accepted will be asked to submit papers one month prior to the workshop to make them available to all participants. Papers may be stand-alone works or parts of larger projects. The amount of time for presentation and discussion will depend on the number of papers accepted.
This workshop is sponsored by the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, with critical support by the NU Ethics Institute and NU Humanities Center, all part of the College of Social Sciences and Humanities.
