CWIERTKA Katarzyna (Universiteit Leiden, Pays-Bas), Canned tea and rice triangle: Food packaging in Japan and around the world
The twentieth-century innovations in the packaging of food and drink have resulted in the rising volumes of packaging waste and the growing concern about its environmental impact. Less attention has been paid to the ways in which new packaging conventions affect our culinary practices. This lecture will explore the consequences of these developments and make an attempt to place it within the historical trajectory of culinary change.
