Welcome to the virtual exhibit for the 2020 joint meeting of the AFHVS and ASFS

Logo for the 2020 meeting of ASFS and AFHVSThe 2020 joint meeting of the Agriculture, Food, and Human Values Society (AFHVS) and the Association for the Study of Food and Society (ASFS) in Athens, Georgia, has been cancelled because of concerns about the potential spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Since we can’t get together in Athens, let’s get together here! Below you’ll find the same kind of information we’d make available at our AFHVS/ASFS exhibit: news about new books, a chance to meet with an editor, and more.

And, from now until the end of June, we’re offering a 50% AFHVS/ASFS conference discount with free shipping (on orders over $25.00). See below for sale details and ordering information.

We’d love to talk to you and catch up on what you have been working on. Please get in touch and let us know how you’d like to get together: phone, email, or online meeting.

Although not necessary before we meet, if you’d like to submit a full book proposal, please click here for general guidelines.
