'Nutrition and History in the Twentieth Century'


A one day conference at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), will be held next month on 15th September.

The conference - 'Nutrition and History in the Twentieth Century' - is jointly organised by the Centre for History in Public Health and the LSHTM Archives, and will bring together historians, archivists and past and present members of the Nutrition Unit at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

The conference will draw attention to nutrition archives at LSHTM and at the Wellcome Library and speakers - on such themes as nutrition science, food policy, and famine - include David Smith, Sander Gilman and the Wellcome Library's Amanda Engineer.

A draft programme for the day is available and more details on the Conference - including an application form - can be found on the the LSHTM website.
