CALL FOR PAPERS
Food Chains: Provisioning, Technology, and Science
For a conference on November 3 and 4, 2006 the Center for the History of Business, Technology and Society invites paper proposals on the provisioning systems that supply our world with food. By provisioning we emphasize the complex institutional arrangements necessary for food to move from farm to the dinner table, along with the dramatic impact of science and technology. We invite proposals for papers that historically situate the connections among the array of institutions involved in food provisioning, including but not limited to farms, food research laboratories, equipment suppliers, food processors, transportation systems, wholesale and retail outlets, government bodies, and non-government organizations and associations. Proposals are also encouraged that examine the relationships between scientific and technological innovations and food provisioning dynamics. Papers may consider any area of the world after 1600.
Proposals should be no more than 500 words and accompanied by a short cv. Deadline for submissions is March 31, 2006. Proposals will be evaluated by the program committee of Warren Belasco, Roger Horowitz, and Philip Scranton. Travel support may be available for those presenting papers at the conference. To submit a proposal or to obtain more information, contact Carol Lockman, Hagley Museum and Library, PO Box 3630, Wilmington DE 19807, 302-658-2400, ext. 243; 302-655-3188 (fax); clockman@Hagley.org.
