Let’s Talk about Food

19 November, 2020, 11:00 am - 11:45 am

This is an online event.

An ‘in conversation’ film with live Q&A, hosted by researchers in humanities and plant sciences.

Have you ever wondered about the history of the food you eat? Be the first to watch a new film and take part in a live Q&A around the food adventures of European settler colonists in the Americas. Historian Dr Rachel Winchcombe (University of Leeds) will discuss the impact of new foods, and encounters with Indigenous peoples on the emotions, health and identities of early European settler colonists. Rachel will be joined by plant scientist Professor Amanda Bamford (University of Manchester) who will explore how the same foods are now shaping debates about sustainability and environmental change. Filmed on location in the beautiful and historic surroundings of The John Rylands Research Institute and Library.

Suitable for 15 years +.

Can’t catch the Premier? The film will also be available online for the remaining days of the Being Human festival until 22 November.
