The Amsterdam Symposium on the History of Food has the aspiration to become an annual point of assembly and an exchange of knowledge in the field of the food history. It intends to stimulate debate and research that bridges the gap between different disciplines. Another aim is to transfer academic research to a wider public and stimulate research using the Special Collection of the University of Amsterdam. The symposium is therefore targeted at both an academic and a professional audience.
« Making sense of taste »
This year, the symposium will be dedicated to the complex notion of taste: its characteristics, its cultural evaluation, and its history.
Applications should be sent by the deadline of 5 March 2017 to: Foodhistoryfirstname.lastname@example.org
