The Stories We Tell: Myths, Legends, and Anecdotes about Tea – UC Davis

January 21, 2021, UC Davis Conference Center

Call for papers

The Global Tea Initiative for the Study of Tea Culture and Science (GTI) at the University of California, Davis, seeks proposals for 30-minute presentations for its Sixth Annual Colloquium. The event will held at the UC Davis Conference Center, Thursday, January 21, 2021. 

Submission Deadline:  June 1, 2020

We welcome proposals that take any approach from the humanities and social sciences, to the sciences and health, to business and farming, and from anywhere in the world. All must address the colloquium’s theme: The Stories We Tell: Myths, Legends, and Anecdotes about Tea. We aim for a mix of papers on culture and science (broadly conceived), which together will present a representative global perspective. Whether papers address such topics as production, connoisseurship, health benefits, social practice, or the narratives that lead to successful marketing and connections with consumers, academic and industry experts are invited to share their expertise at this event.

Papers will be considered for inclusion in a peer-reviewed anthology published by an academic press.

The event includes networking opportunities between the scientific, academic, industry, and community members, and promises to provide a vibrant atmosphere for collaboration and learning across the disciplines.

To apply, please visit the Global Tea Initiative website.

In the subject line, please use: GTI #6 proposal question.
