With little over a month to go until the conference, here's a reminder to register, if you haven't already. We have a really exciting day of papers lined up with many brilliant speakers, and the whole thing costs only £20, or £15 if you're a student, with a further reduction for University of Warwick staff and students. You can view the full programme here, and register here.
To draw your attention to some recent changes to the programme; Sam Goodman from Bournemouth University joins panel 1A, with a paper entitled '"Oh for the want of vegetable food!": Experiences of Hunger and Privation in Indian Mutiny Diaries'. Jonathan Buckmaster from Royal Holloway joins panel 2A with his paper '"I'll be content to eat my own head, Sir!": Grimwig, Grimaldi and Excessive Consumption in the Dickens Pantomime'. We're very pleased to welcome both speakers and look forward to hearing their papers on 8th March.
A final exciting announcement is that thanks to the generous support of Warwick RSSP, we are able to welcome Animal Vegetable Mineral to the conference. AVM employ food as an artistic medium, creating edible interventions into food history which stimulate the mind and the taste buds. We are thrilled to have AVM's founder, food historian Tasha Marks, joining us at 'Devouring' to talk about her practice and share with us some goodies inspired by nineteenth-century food adulteration scandals.
See you all on the 8th March!
Mary, Laura and Chris.
