Welcome to the Eighth International Conference on Food History and Studies!

This is the eighth edition of our International Conference on the History and Cultures of Food. More than ever, we hope to make this meeting a scientific event of reference, a meeting place and an essential forum for all those who work towards a better understanding of food. The very continuity of this annual congress is proof of its success.

This event corresponds to one of the essential objectives of our institute: to contribute to the full recognition of Food Studies as an autonomous disciplinary field and to support the development of research in this field.
