Food as Indicator of Inequality and Social Hierarchies since 1800 – Peter Scholliers
This talk will address issues of social inequality and the way it can be measured by means of food consumption. First to be considered will be global inequality (which shows signs of diminishing inequality in the long run), followed by local/regional inequality (which shows persistent inequality). In the end, food proves to be a reliable, subtle and tangible measurement of social and cultural inequality.
TIME: 6pm – 7.30PM
We have adapted the organization of Seminars and Conferences in respect of the government health provisions to guarantee strict compliance from all those involved in the academic experience (students, teachers, administrative staff), in an effort to safeguard everyone’s safety.
With lecturers’ permission, presentations will be recorded and made available to students who are unable to participate in-person, again pending prior authorization; recordings will be uploaded to our YouTube channel.
We invite all to participate.
