Announcing the Joint 2005 Annual Meetings of the AGRICULTURE, FOOD, AND HUMAN VALUES SOCIETY (AFHVS) and the ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF FOOD AND SOCIETY (ASFS)
Theme: Visualizing Food and Farm
Thursday, June 9 - Sunday, June 12, 2005 The Benson Hotel, Portland, Oregon 97205 Local Arrangements Chair Debra Lippoldt, Growing Gardens, Portland, OR (www.growing-gardens.org ) Program Chair Gil Gillespie, Development Sociology, Cornell University Contributed Paper Abstracts or Proposals for Sessions/Panels are due February 18, 2005. Portland, Oregon is the perfect place to "Visualize Food and Farm." It has a very active alternative agriculture and food community that has been fostered by years of farmland protection policies. These policies have preserved the rural soul while sustaining urban life with downtown farmers' markets (on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday), outstanding restaurants, serious brewpubs and wineries, as well as gardens and innovative private and nonprofit efforts to build a strong, regional food economy. Conference refreshments and banquet will feature products of local organic food producers. The conference site, the historic 4-diamond Benson Hotel (http://www.bensonhotel.com/) in the heart of downtown Portland, was built in 1912 during Portland's "golden age" and was designed by one of the premier architects of the period. Conference participants get the excellent rate of $91 a night plus taxes. Portland is one of the cities often judged to be among the most livable. It has a vibrant downtown with many attractions, including many excellent restaurants, public parks, and Powell's Book Store. Portland's Light Rail Line (MAX) travels from the airport right into downtown (www.trimet.org). Our conference coincides with the 98th Rose Festival, giving opportunities for a memorable vacation for accompanying family members. The Rose Festival (http://www.rosefestival.org/) features a wide range of activities from late May through June. On Saturday, June 11, the Grand Floral Parade will pass in front of the Benson Hotel. Other festival events taking place during the time of the conference include Dragon Boat racing (with Portland's sister city, Kaohsiung, Japan), concerts, and the Rose Show.
