"Wir wurzeln alle im Alltage.
Seine Gewohnheiten machen für die
meisten schlechthin das Leben aus.
In diesem Alltag, den bloss der unbesonnene
Élegant des Geistes bespöttelt, liegt etwas
sehr Grosses ... liegt unsere Cultur."
Michael Haberlandt: Cultur im Alltag. Wien 1900.

TERMINSACHE NR. 19: Eating at Work (CFP)

CFP: Eating at Work (18th-21th centuries)
International conference
Centre Georges Chevrier - Université de Bourgogne, Dijon (France)
16.01.2014-17.01.2014, Dijon, Université de Dijon
Deadline: 31.05.2013

Aus dem Ankündigungstext:

Eating at work, considered in the broad sense as all food consumption practices related to an employed occupation, both everyday and exceptional, in times of strike or during celebrations, constitutes a privileged observatory of social practices, whether they relate to hierarchical power relations or to horizontal, egalitarian sociability in the world of work. The last three centuries (XVIII-XXI centuries) have seen profound changes in the ways in which food is consumed at work, exposing the transformation of societies and their relationship to work, nutrition and taste. The movement seems to concern Europe and beyond, a dimension to be explored in our work, even so we assume that its rhythms varied widely.
To address this question, we wish to examine the times and places where people eat, with whom they eat and what they eat, issues that surely overlap, but on which it is possible to construct and initiate some further reflections.
