The International Interdisciplinary Conference

Reading and Writing Recipe Books: 1600-1800
8-9 August 2008 at the University of Warwick

The deadline for submissions is 31st January 2008.
Travel bursaries for students and junior faculty may be available.
This will be the first conference worldwide to focus exclusively on early modern recipe books.
This international interdisciplinary conference will provide a much-needed environment that allows recipe book scholars to meet and discuss important issues such as comparative methodologies and periodization, thereby offering a key opportuninity to shape the course of future research on this genre.
