Objects: carriers of knowledge

Tuesday 19 March: 5:30pm - 6:45pm

Mill Lane Lecture Rooms , ML1, 8 Mill Lane, CB2 1RW

What is this object? What is its value? Why should we care?

'Objects' is a new project being led by the Cambridge Global Food Security IRC.

Cambridge researchers have been bringing their expertise together across disciplines to discuss objects relating to food security: from their history to their value, from what they represent to why we should care.

We invite you to join these conversations, and share perspectives that may help us to address the complex challenge of food security for all.

A head of wheat: could we survive without it?
A potato specimen collected by Charles Darwin: highly nutritious or junk?
Processed food: what are the cultural, economic and public health considerations?
