The University of Vermont is a fantastic site to host the 2014 conference. In a state that has been at the forefront of the sustainable food movement, UVM has adopted Food systems as one of three spires of excellence in a university-wide transdisciplinary research initiative.

Conference Background:
The Association for the Study of Food and Society (ASFS) was founded in 1985, with the goals of promoting the interdisciplinary study of food and society. It has continued that mission by holding annual meetings; the first of which was in 1987. The Agriculture, Food and Human Values Society (AFHVS) encompasses individual and institutional members from disciplines that range from
agricultural production and the rural social sciences to nutrition policy and the humanities. The AFHVS was formed in 1987 to promote the study of values issues associated with the production, consumption and distribution of food, fiber and natural resources.
