A 2 day conference, organised by UCL Pacific Islands Research Network, responding to the widening interest in the political, economic, cultural and health dimensions of feasting, food production and famine in the Pacific. This conference aims to provide a platform for more engaged dialogue between archaeology, anthropology, history, ecology, health & medical studies, economics, epidemiology, food studies and the social and historical sciences more broadly.

Papers from this conference will be published in a book on Food Culture in the Pacific: Interdisciplinary Perspectives.

This conference is kindly sponsored by the Institute of Archaeology, Mellon Foundation and Department of Anthropology (UCL).
