Tasting the Past. Towards an Entangled History of Food and Recipes (1400-2000) is a blended-learning programme that consists of online seminars, a lecture and an intensive spring school that will take place in late March/early April 2021 in Tübingen. Thus, the project will combine both the possibilities of virtual learning and the acquisition of knowledge over an extended period with a compact course taught face-to-face in Tübingen.
The seminars are open to Master or Bachelor students at the CIVIS member Universities majoring in history. In case of free spaces applications of Master or Bachelor students from other disciplines with a historical focus such as archaeology, literature, or historical linguistics are welcome. The application deadline is 30 October 2020.
Programme of the course includes:
- Lecture: Food in History 1400-2000
- Bachelor seminar: German Food and Identity around the Globe in the 19th and 20th Centuries
- Master seminar: Tasting the Past. Recipes as Historical Sources (1400-2000)
- Spring school: concludes the Master Seminar and will consist of classes taught by specialists in the field from CIVIS member universities and hands-on culinary work
Both seminars and lecture will take place between November 2020 and February 2021.
Bringing together students from different CIVIS universities will allow us not only to draw on the different language skills and resources available but also make this a ‘real life’ experience of the transnational perspectives and frameworks historians need to address today. Taught with a strong focus on explorative learning methods and peer exchange, the seminar and the spring school are set to provide also first-hand experience of collaborative research central to all discussions of global and entangled history.
