This report details the events and proceedings of the 16th Annual Summer University dedicated to Food and Drink Studies which took place in Tours, France from the 26th August to the 2nd September 2018.

Abstract

The Institut Européen d’Histoire et des Cultures de l’Alimentation (IEHCA, European Institute for the History and Cultures of Food) was established in 2001 by the French Ministry of National Education, Higher Education and Research in partnership with the Centre-Val de Loire region and the University of Tours. As a scientific and cultural development agency, it seeks to encourage university research and teaching in connection with “food cultures and heritages” in the humanities and social sciences. The university serves as a key platform for the discussion of new research in Food & Drink Studies. In 2018, 20 researchers from a wide field of disciplines, and exploring varied topics within food and drink studies, gathered to share, discuss and gain a further understanding of current research questions and issues concerned with food, drink and society.
