The 2022 Aristologist Symposium is on Saturday-Sunday 26-27 November 2022 at Te Manawa Museum in Te Papaioea Palmerston North, Aoteoroa New Zealand.
The New Zealand Symposia are informal meetings of amateur, academic and professional gastronomers, exploring specific topics of significance to eating, drinking, cooking and food production. It is open to all with an interest in food, its creation and history.
The 2022 Symposium of Gastronomy has, as its theme, Refreshment – refreshing foods, ideas and liquids that sustain us, enliven our palates and bring us together socially. From breakfast through to digestifs, ‘refreshment’ is a wide concept offering many perspectives for dreaming, discussion and debate.
Usually 20 minutes in duration, organisers also welcome short 5-10 minute snippets, longer presentations (according to need), and practical demonstrations relating to food/drink. A short descriptive abstract of the intended presentation should be sent as soon as possible to Juliet Galuszka. If accepted for presentation, a final abstract will requested for inclusion in the Symposium programme, several weeks prior to the meeting. A digital copy of the full paper, in a suitable print format, will be requested after your presentation for archival publication in the Aristologist. Audio-visual requirements and presentation length will be discussed with you upon receipt of the preliminary abstract.
