Food and life-span in Europe, 1800-2000

ICREFH (International Commission for Research into European Food History) Symposium, in Copenhagen, September 28-30, 2015

This symposium will focus on the changing relationship between food and the life-span in Europe from an historical perspective. Examining changes in the relationship between food and different age segments of the population, both in and across time, will enhance our overall understanding of the fundamental changes in European standards of living during and after industrialization.

In order to shed light on the theme of the conference, contributions from a range of academic disciplines will be presented; including history, sociology, anthropology, biology and nutrition.

Deadline for submission of abstracts has expired.
