Conference: Food in History

From famine to feast, from grain riots to TV cookery programmes, dieting to domesticity, food features in almost every aspect of human societies since prehistoric times. At its annual summer conference in 2013 the Institute of Historical Research aims to showcase the best of current scholarly writing, research and debate on the subject. Our plenary lecturers include Ken Albala, Susanne Freidberg, Cormac Ó Gráda and Steven Shapin. The conference will include a publishers’ book fair, policy forum, film screenings and a historic food recreation event.
