A message from Symposium chair Elisabeth Luard

Thanks to all Symposiasts and everyone involved in the success of 2019’s Oxford Symposium on Food & Power. Whether as paper-presenters, invited speakers, invited chefs, first-timers, old-timers everyone who made the 2019 Symposium such a vintage year.

Which is not to imply that all 38 years of our existence weren’t vintage, as evidenced by the popularity of previous papers, all downloadable free courtesy of our funding-vehicle, Friends of the Oxford Symposium. Draft papers on Food & Power are currently undergoing the usual editing-process, and will be downloadable in 3 years’ time but available in volume-form from Prospect Books at the 2020 Symposium and thereafter.

Meanwhile please consider the proposing a paper on Herbs and Spices, our subject for 2020. You’ll find suggestions of what might be addressed here. Registration for the 2020 Symposium opens in mid-December. Please bear with us if there are any glitches in communication as the website is shortly to be upgraded with a glorious new design by Jake Tilson – who else?
