You are what you eat, but also where you eat and with whom. This interactive event will explore the archaeology, history and literary genres of meat consumption. It will highlight how attitudes have changed through time and with what consequences for humans, animals and the environment. If humans are going to eat meat, what sort of animals should they be? Come and find out!
This event is organised by the University of Exeter and is part of the Being Human festival. Led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the British Academy, Being Human is a national festival promoting public engagement with humanities research. The festival highlights the ways in which the humanities can inspire and enrich our everyday lives, help us to understand ourselves, our relationships with others, and the challenges we face in a changing world.
