Description

Food is a pacifier that is also a resource that occasions violence, sometimes even becoming an instrument of violence. For this session, Mens et Mensa presents papers that explore the ways in which medieval persons or communities understood, represented or used food, and the ideas, practices or artifacts associated with it, to make peace, as the occasion of violence or as an instrument of violence.
