Waste Not, Want Not: Food and Thrift from Antiquity to the Present – September 2019

I was one of the principal organisers for Cambridge Body and Food Histories group’s second annual conference, funded by the AHRC -DTP.

‘Waste Not, Want Not: Food and Thrift from Antiquity to the Present’ 

This interdisciplinary conference explored food waste and food sustainability practices (or ‘thrift’!) throughout history. It brought together historical researchers and present-day policy makers.

A write-up of the conference findings will be posted shortly, along with plans for future dissemination.
