CfP: "Figures" in the history of nutrition

It is time for H-Nutrition’s annual short-essay series again. This year's series is entitled "Figures." We invite authors to analyze an object or image that you find particularly meaningful in your study of the history of nutrition. Perhaps it is the food advertisement that sparked your interest for your first project. Maybe you could tell us about the calorimeter displayed in the library. Or even the bathroom scale that made the scholarly suddenly very personal. Do you use material culture when you teach students about the history of food and food science? Have you come across particularly striking food packaging or nutritional labeling? What visual source figures prominantly in your work on how food or drink intersect health and science? There are no restrictions on geographical location or time period. Preference will be given to submissions that speak to the history of nutrition specifically rather than food history more generally.

We aim to make some funds available to support participants’ travel to Exeter, but will not be able to confirm funding until later in the year. Please send proposals (max. 500 words) to both Alex ( a.m.aylward@leeds.ac.uk ) and Ad
