CfP: Climate, food and famine in history

Submissions are open for the upcoming workshop "Climate, food and famine in history", to be held on April 14th 2023 at Manchester's Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine. 

This is an intimate 1-day event to bring together individuals from a variety of research backgrounds in an effort to generate transdisciplinary engagement around the intersection between climate, food and famine in history. We are especially interested in papers that explore how climate has featured in historical discourses about food and famine in different ways and across different contexts. Please see the full call for papers at for full information. 

Deadline for abstracts (300 words): December 15th 2023 

The format of the workshop will consist of 20 minute presentations, followed by 10 minutes of discussion at the end of each panel. All presenters will take part in a 50 minute roundtable to finish proceedings. 

A limited number of travel bursaries are available (with priority for early career researchers). 

All submissions and queries should be directed to organisers Eleanor Shaw and Robert Naylor at
