“The Experimental Archaeology of Medieval and Renaissance Food.”
The Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (CMRS) of The Ohio State University invites paper abstracts for our biennial celebration of Popular Culture and the Deep Past (PCDP), which will take place on February 11-12, 2022. The theme is “The Experimental Archaeology of Medieval and Renaissance Food.” Papers of approximately 20 minutes can be given in person or via Zoom.
Topics might include recipe books as literary texts, cooking and eating as social practices, and the pleasures and perils of recreating historic dishes. Speakers may also propose small-scale cooking demonstrations.
The event will be anchored by several scholar-cooks who will prepare historic dishes in the Ohio Union’s Instructional Kitchen.
Please see the full description on our website http://go.osu.edu/pcdp2022, and feel free to circulate this call widely. The deadline for abstracts is November 19th, 2021. Pease send them, as well as any questions, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
