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

After a virtual conference in 2021, we are happy to see you again, in Tours, for the Seventh International Conference on Food History and Studies.

This event is being held over two days and brings together nearly 200 researchers from all continents. As you all know, this annual gathering has become a benchmark academic event, a place for people to meet, and key forum for all those working for a better understanding of food as a social fact. We are pleased to have made this event a place at the forefront of what is being done in the field of Food Studies, a place where you can make your work known and shared it, a place where you can build and enrich your network.

This annual conference corresponds to one of the essential objectives of our Institute: getting Food Studies fully recognized as an autonomous disciplinary field and supporting research developments in this domain.
