The event falls within the scope of the continuation of initiatives carried out by the IEHCA for the past fifteen years in pursuing its editorial policy, its support for research and its efforts to facilitate networking opportunities among Food Studies researchers.
All proposals pertaining to Food Studies will be considered and all researchers are welcome (doctoral, post-doctoral, research lecturers, independent scholars etc). Ultimately the conference aspires to be a multi- and cross-disciplinary event, covering all historical periods.
Two types of submission, with free choice of subject, will be accepted:
