Re: How Can H-Nutrition Help?

Dear Andrew Ruis 1/22/2017

The H-Nutrition Zotero library of resources for the history of nutrition will be very useful indeed. https://www.zotero.org/groups/h-nutrition/items. My thanks to you and your colleagues for setting it up!

I posted this reference to H-Nutrition in 11/2016. I can't figure out how to add it to the Zotero library, so I'd be grateful if you could do it. It should go under the Micronutrients heading, I think.

FOOD Words and STORIES - 1st issue of MERIDIAN CRITIC, 2017

Your network editor has reposted this from H-Announce. The byline reflects the original authorship.

For the literary among us, the Romanian academic journal Meridian Critic is looking for submissions on food, broadly construed, which I take to include nutrition. Let us know if you get a piece accepted so we can circulate it on the network. Submission deadline April 15.   ~Kristen
