Conference “Waste not, Want not: Food and Thrift from Antiquity to the Present” (Cambridge, 12-13 September 2019)

The Cambridge Body and Food Histories group is delighted to announce the call for papers for its second annual conference “Waste not, Want not: Food and Thrift from Antiquity to the Present”

12-13 September 2019. English faculty, University of Cambridge

This day-and-a-half conference will bring together academics and professionals working within the interdisciplinary fields of food studies and food sustainability research, to reflect on past and present attitudes towards food preservation and waste. Part of an ongoing historiographical effort to better understand consuming behaviours through time, the conference aims to open up a dialogue between historians and policy makers. Using both past and present as critical lenses, the event will serve as a platform for the discussion of more sustainable food practice in the present and future.

Keynote addresses will be delivered by Dr Amanda Herbert (Folger Institute, Washington), and Dr Simon Werrett (UCL).

Please see the full details below or on our website.
