CFP: Turning Points in Baltic and Central East European Food History

CALL FOR PAPERS: Turning Points in Baltic and Central East European Food History – Knowledge, Consumption, and Production in Changing Environments Tallinn, Estonia, 29-31 August 2012 The deadline for applications is April 15, 2012. Together with global changes (climate change, colonialism, industrialisation etc.), the conference will focus in particular on the specific regional characteristics of the Baltic countries and Central East Europe. This is all the more necessary since, despite the complex inter-ethnic composition, class structures and trade relations in the Baltic area and Poland, there have only been a few comparative studies made of the historical and trans-cultural food culture of the region which draw upon the latest research in this field. The main focus of this international and interdisciplinary conference will be upon the continuities and discontinuities in Baltic food history and in contemporary Baltic food studies. This conference constitutes the first in a small series of conferences on environmental history which are being organised in cooperation with the Herder Institute in Marburg and the Institute of...
