Royal Historical Society latest to back Food and the First World War symposium

The Royal Historical Society has become the latest scholarly society to provide financial backing to Food and the First World War, a symposium marking the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of war, to be held at Liverpool Hope University on 2 April 2014. 

The symposium, which has also received funding from the Economic History Society and the Society for the Study of French History, will feature both established academics and early career researchers. Speakers will explore the moral, nutritional, social and economic role of food and drink in the First World War.

The Royal Historical Society was founded in 1868 and remains the foremost society in Great Britain promoting and defending the scholarly study of the past. Dr Bryce Evans, the event organiser, said ‘we are delighted to receive this support from such a prestigious external funder’.
