Food in Wartime, 1914-1920 workshop

Event date Event time Event location
27/04/2018 10:30 am - 3:30 pm University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield


On behalf of Professor Jonathan Morris (Historian of Coffee and Business Heritage at University of Hertfordshire) and the AHRC-funded Everyday Lives in War Centre team, we are delighted to announce this themed workshop to coincide with ‘Beyond the Battlefields’, an exhibition of Käthe Buchler’s photographs of Germany during the First World War.


The short programme - which will be held at the University of Hertfordshire (College Lane Campus) - includes talks from speakers covering the subject of food at home and at the front, from both German and British perspectives.  

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Margrit Schulte Beerbühl (Düsseldorf)
  • Rachel Duffett (Essex)
  • Julie Moore (Hertfordshire)

There will be an opportunity to visit the exhibition and explore how food is represented in the images.
