Complimentary Afternoon Tea will be served between the panels and there will be plenty of opportunities to join in discussions and the interdisciplinary exchange of new ideas and research on food and the postcolonial.  All are welcome and you don't have to be a student or academic to attend. Anyone who loves or is interested in food is most welcome.
