How much is too much? Negotiating early modern drink consumption (Hybrid BrIAS Talk)
VUB/ULB Brussels

Hybrid BrIAS Talk by Beat Kümin (Warwick History & Food GRP / BrIAS Fellow)

Throughout history, official norms, religious guidelines and social practices regarding the ‘right’ amount of drink intake have evolved in line with numerous variables. Government and Church regulation, health advice and popular preferences have often been conflicting, with actual consumption levels by groups and individuals the result of complex processes of negotiation. This BrIAS talk examines the blurred borderlines between abstinence, moderation and excess, arguing that sustainability relates to social and cultural as well as ecological and economic considerations. The chronological focus lies on the early modern period between c. 1450-1800, with evidence drawn from source genres like legislation, household accounts, diaries, travel reports and works of art.
