Registration is now open for the sixth edition of the Amsterdam Symposium on the History of Food.
The Amsterdam Symposium on the History of Food is the annual international point of assembly and an exchange of knowledge in the field of Food history in the Netherlands. It intends to stimulate debate and research that bridges the gap between different disciplines. Another aim is to transfer academic research to a wider public and stimulate research using the History of Food Collection of the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The symposium is therefore targeted at both an academic and a professional audience.
The 2019 topic is:
(Post)colonial foodways: creating, negotiating, and resisting transnational food systems
We are particularly delighted to announce that the Keynote lecture at this year’s ASHF will be delivered by Katarzyna Cwiertka, Professor of Modern Japan Studies at Leiden University, author of Modern Japanese Cuisine: Food, Power and National Identity (Reaktion Books 2006), Cuisine, Colonialism and Cold War: Food in Twentieth Century Korea (Reaktion Books 2012) and Himerareta washokushi (Shinsensha 2016).
Symposium fee: €90 (Early Bird until 15 September €75).
Reduced fee: €45 (students, Friends of the Special Collections UvA).
Since places are allotted on a first-come, first-serve basis, please register as early as possible.
