New Developments

Blackadder: Your plum duff tastes like its a molehill decorated with rabbit – droppings
Baldrick: I thought you wouldn’t notice

Our aim for the conference is to provide the opportunity for in depth study into the link between food and conflict during the first experience of total warfare. We have eight delegates exploring the moral, nutritional, social and economic role of food and drink on the Western Front and beyond.

As a university we are grateful to have established links with the National Archives, the First World War Centenary Programme and most recently BBC North West have shown interest in discussions regarding the event. We are extremely excited for the interest that people have shown in the conference as it promises to be a monumental event.

We have also set up a twitter feed which will keep you up to date on all the current developments and topics that will be discussed at the event in April.
