- Export as iCalendar
Location: online MS Teams

Panel discussion with Susan Flavin (Trinity College, Dublin), Allen J. Grieco (Villa I Tatti, Florence) and Peter Scholliers (VUB, Brussel), moderated by Beat Kümin (History, Warwick; GRP 'Food Cultures' lead).

What are the continuities and changes of food and drink production, distribution and consumption since the Middle Ages? How can we find out about the ever-evolving attitudes, tastes and fashions of people in the past? When did processes like urbanization, industrialization and globalization start to affect everyday diets? Where are food and drink studies today & how can interdisciplinary approaches advance them further? These are some of the issues to be addressed in a panel discussion involving three leading voices with complementary chronological and thematic expertise.
