Abstract

Within these sessions, speakers will be considering the theme of food and sustenance as it applies to their own areas of research. These case studies will highlight the ways in which sustenance (be that food for the body or food for the soul) can be found in a wide range of sources and have an impact across a number of disciplines. In this first session the focus will be on France and on feeding and feasting within a social context and at varying levels of the social hierarchy.
