From the 26th of August to 2nd of September in Tours, France, the 16th Summer University dedicated to Food & Drink Studies will be held. The summer school will be an opportunity to discuss on the most recent issues in the food research: What are the major interests currently explored in anthropology, classics, gastronomy, history, literary studies, sociology and other disciplines? Which general trends have emerged over recent years? Great opportunity for young scholars.
