Feeding Ireland since the Famine: Production, Sustainability and the State'

Time: 9.30-17.00

Location: Room F215, St Patrick's Campus, DCU. Drumcondra Road Upper Dublin.

A one-day symposium at DCU is set to explore the history of the food supply journey from catastrophic famine in the mid-nineteenth century to today.

Three panels will explore interrelated themes – food sustainability, food production and state intervention. ‘Food sustainability in the shadow of the Famine’ will examine major food developments of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. ‘Food, agriculture and state intervention’ will consider challenges for agriculture and food from independence to date. Finally, ‘Food from the land’ will focus on specific food/agriculture sectors since the Famine.
The symposium will provide leading and emerging scholars with an opportunity to further our understanding of Feeding Ireland Since the Famine.

All are welcome.
