Conference: Food and the First World War, 02.04.2014, Liverpool

Organiser: Bryce Evans, Liverpool Hope University (Web)
Time: 2 April 2014
Venue: Department of History and Politics, Liverpool Hope University
The centenary of the outbreak of the First World War provides the opportunity for in-depth study of this most compelling and controversial conflict from new and refreshing angles. This conference, which takes place on Wednesday 2nd April 2014, combines two of the ‘hottest’ topics in current historical research – Food, and the First World War – the respective themes of the annual Anglo-American Conference of Historians in 2013 and 2014.
In 2014 people around the world will mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. This one day symposium explores a unique aspect of that conflict: the role of food and drink on the Western Front and beyond. Eight speakers explore the moral, nutritional, social and economic role of food and drink in the First World War.
Topics range from substitute foodstuffs to farming, from troops‘ diets to ‚fair‘ distribution, and from alcoholic overindulgence to temperance.
