FOST, the research team on Social & Cultural Food Studies based at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Free University of Brussels), will organize a session on ‘Food, court cultures and the world since 1850’ at the European Social Science History Conference (http://www.iisg.nl/esshc/) in Lisbon (Portugal), 2008. Afterwards, publishing house Kegan Paul will publish the contributions. Although the paper submission for the conference is closed, FOST is still looking for authors who would like to prepare a chapter for this book.
We welcome chapters that study the power of food at a (European) court in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Please send us an abstract with your chapter proposal before September 10th, 2007.
Chapters should be approximately 9,000 words and may include up to 5 images in grayscale. More information will be provided after acceptance. Chapters should be written in faultless English.
Deadline for the final contributions is March 1st, 2008.
