5:30pm Four Course Meal

December 15, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Four Course Meal

For those who seek to bring a little food into their research, we propose the following four course meal. First, for those who like a little novelty in their cookbooks, we will be examining 19th-century domestic fiction. Next, a history of salt, milk and forks or, as we’re calling it, “the history of the world through a single food or food-related item” followed by a look at food and virtue and what each has to do with the other. We’ll finish up the series with a workshop centered on the theme of the 2017 Oxford Symposium of Food and Cookery: Food and Landscape. We encourage both scholars and non-scholars alike to partake of the readings and of the snacks. We seek also to engage the English-language community and thereby extend the network already established by a lively discussion group for francophone scholars and food professionals led by Julia Csergo of UQAM.
