This conference aims to reflect on the gender dimension of food and cooking in the crucial period of the early globalisation. It looks closely at the ‘making process’, as a highly gendered and embodied experience and as a form of production and transmission of knowledge, skills and social identities. By bringing into dialogue diverse geographies and approaches, the conference explores a wide range of food-related activities which have been rarely studied together, including brewing, cheese-making, pastry-making and sausage-making.
