Thursday 12th and Friday 13th September 2019 University of Cambridge
This day-and-a-half conference will bring together academics and professionals from the interdisciplinary field of food studies and food sustainability research to reflect on past and present attitudes towards food preservation and waste. The title reflects an ongoing historiographical effort to better understand consuming behaviours through time. The programme is also designed to open up a dialogue between scholars of the past and policy makers. Using both past and present as critical lenses, this event will serve as a platform for the discussion of more sustainable food practice in the present and future.
