Amsterdam Symposium on the History of Food 2019

Friday, 15 November – Saturday 16 November 2019 | Aula of the University of Amsterdam, Singel 411, 1012 XM Amsterdam | The Amsterdam Symposium on the History of Food is the annual 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 Allard Pierson | Collections of the University of Amsterdam. The symposium is therefore targeted at both an academic and a professional audience.
