Call for Papers
Food History Seminar
Institute of Historical Research, London
Summer 2018, and Academic Year 2018-2019
Launched at the IHR in summer 2017, the Food History Seminar provides an inclusive setting in which food historians, academics and experts working in related fields can come together to discuss their research.
We wish to encourage the participation of all researchers in the seminar, including established academics, independent scholars, museum professionals and postgraduates. We welcome papers covering topics across all historical periods and geographical locations.
We are currently accepting proposals to present during summer 2018 and the academic year 2018-2019. If you would like to submit a proposal to present a 20 or 50-minute paper at one of our sessions, please send a 250 words abstract and a short biography by the 2nd of March to Food History Seminar convenors at firstname.lastname@example.org Please indicate in your abstract whether you would prefer to present a paper in summer 2018, autumn 2018 or spring 2019.
To better serve the historical community and distribute research on food history as widely as possible, we will begin trialling live streaming of the seminars, which run every other Thursday, 5:30-7:30pm. Presenters will have the option of participating or opting out of these trials. Please indicate in your proposal if you would be interested in participating in such broadcasts.
Please note that we are unable to provide financial assistance for travel or accommodation to seminar presenters.
