International Conference on Food and Drink in Egypt and Sudan Throughout History

The Institut français d’archéologie orientale and Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology Research Center in Cairo are organising an international conference on food and drink in Egypt and Sudan throughout history, focusing on the continuity and innovations that have occurred at times of change.
Whether political, religious, cultural or environmental, drastic transformations have often left their mark on food. They affected available ingredients, how they were prepared and consumed, and even people’s attitude towards certain items. The conference will aim to question notions of continuity in both Egyptian and Sudanese cuisines, focusing on shifts observed in food and drink as a result of times of transitioning.
Presented papers will not only cover a wide geographical and temporal range, but are expected to be interdisciplinary, highlighting the diverse methodologies and datasets that can be used to study food- and drinkways.

Abstracts of 200-250 words can be sent to by 15th December, 2017. Please include your name, affiliation and email with the abstract in a single word document. Kindly note that the conference language is English.
