‘Food Inequalities’

On 24 and 25 May 2023, the Posthumus Conference 2023 was held at the University of Antwerp. This year’s central theme was ‘Food Inequalities’, a thema that was also the main topic of two highly interesting keynote lectures, delivered by Dr Susan Flavin (Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin and Principal Investigator of the ERC Funded Project FoodCult and emeritus Professor Peter Scholliers (Vrije Universiteit Brussel).

The N.W. Posthumus Institute wants to express its warmest thanks to all participants, but particularly to our keynotes and the hosts team at Antwerp University, Professor Tim Soens and Dr Stef Espeel for making this conference such a wonderful event.
