The Politics of Food and Drink." Scholars Sasha Garwood and Elsa Richardson will look at "Food, Ethics and Power" in very different eras. Garwood explores "The Skull Beneath the Skin: Women, Sex and Food Refusal in Early Modern England," while Richardson examines "Love at the Crank's Table: Sex, Politics and the Natural Diet." Texas A&M's Troy Bickford, author of _Eating the Empire_, will chair.
