Organized by ESNA (European Society for Nineteenth-Century Art) and MAS (Museum Aan de Stroom) Antwerp, in conjunction with the exhibition ANTWERP À LA CARTE which looks at the intimate relationship between food and the city.
This conference will discuss how the development of the food industry and the changing notion of ‘taste’ and social mores are reflected in nineteenth-century art in the broadest sense. Papers may concern visual arts including graphic arts in the form of illustrated advertisements and culinary literature, as well as nouveautés(objects which were designed to reflect the evolution of eating and table manners).
Send proposals (max. 300 words) for a 20-minute paper (in English) for this conference to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 January 2017 at the latest.
