October 6th - 7th 2014, Montreal- Imaginary of Gastronomy
The objective of the Imaginary of Gastronomy symposium is to question the values, references, sensory behaviours, views, expectations and identities attached to gastronomy and to all the infatuations that it raises. In a world where economic, cultural, sanitary and touristic challenges in the agricultural sector, agro-industrial sector and culinary sector are recurring matters in government public policies, we believe it pertinent to generate new information. This new knowledge, which we wish to produce will not only, benefit forthcoming research, but will also be used to analyze current topics and activities in the economic sector (eg. culture, tourism, industries and business). The program will include: presentations from local researchers, Canadian researchers and internationally renowned researchers, as well as a round table discussion with culinary and tourism professionals.
