About the seminar

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. To better serve the historical community and distribute research on food history as widely as possible, nationally and internationally, we will hold our 2020-2021 meetings on zoom. Presenters will give a 30-minute paper with 20 minutes for discussion afterwards. Joint Sessions will also be held with two presenters, each giving a 20-minute paper followed by discussion. Meetings will run for one hour. Session will be held on Thursdays from 17:30-18:30 UK Time / 12:30-13:30 US EST. Speakers and attendees will be allowed into seminar meetings 20 minutes prior to the start of each session.

These meetings are open to all and free to attend. But a booking via the seminar’s IHR webpage is required to secure a spot and receive an email with the zoom link. Details about our schedule and presenters’ abstracts can be found below.

The meetings will be recorded and will be available to view soon after each session has finished. Past seminars can be viewed in the “Archives” section of our website
