'Well-Tested, Written with Greatest Effort and Care': The Various Functions of Austrian Manuscript Recipe Books

Institute of Historical Research 'Well-Tested, Written with Greatest Effort and Care': The Various Functions of Austrian Manuscript Recipe Books Helga Mullneritsch (University of Liverpool) In my paper, I explore the form and function of the Austrian manuscript recipe book in the long eighteenth century. German scholars tend to focus on the linguistic peculiarities of the recipes, and Anglo-American scholars on female life-writing and life-stories, while food historians are primarily interested in the history of the recipes. The function of the artefacts, based on their material peculiarities, has so far not been researched systematically. Due to the peculiar form of the manuscripts, there are ‘types of use’ rather than ‘types of manuscripts’. Four such ‘types of usage’ can be established: the manuscript cookery/recipe book as (1) book in its own right, (2) prestige object, (3) memory aid, and (4) manual of practical instruction. I will draw on case-studies which show the role...

Symbols of Sovereignty: Food, Pageantry and Propaganda in Lancastrian England and France

Institute of Historical Research Symbols of Sovereignty: Food, Pageantry and Propaganda in Lancastrian England and France Vanessa King (Goldsmiths, University of London) This paper considers how the presentation of sweetmeats at royal banquets played a small but significant part in selling the ideology of the Lancastrian monarchy. English sources first note the use of sotelties, in the form of edible heraldic devices, by Henry IV to proclaim the legitimacy of his usurpation of Richard II. For Henry V and Henry VI, feasting provided the opportunity to reinforce the rightness of their claim to rule England and France. Centre stage is given to the elaborate sotelties presented before dinner guests, with accompanying verses by John Lydgate, at the English coronation of Henry VI in 1429. Food History seminar series

A Fraction of A Man: Dieting the Female Prisoner, 1843-1913

Institute of Historical Research A Fraction of A Man: Dieting the Female Prisoner, 1843-1913 Nadja Durbach (University of Utah) Historians have argued that the system of mass feeding that emerged in prisons over the course of the nineteenth century was a model of utilitarian efficiency, industrial progress, and time-discipline. But the prison dietary was in fact far from uniform. Differences of sex, age, physical activity, and length of sentence were central considerations in the preparation of suitable dietaries and exceptions were frequently made for those that fell outside the classificatory norms. Prison authorities were animated by, and reinforced, not a vision of the human body as a uniform machine, but rather a variety of bodily imaginaries predicated on human difference that had effects well beyond the walls of the prison. This paper focuses on the dieting of female prisoners in Britain from the introduction of the Graham dietaries in 1843 to the height of the suffragette mo...

Queering Marxist [Trans]Feminism: Queer and Trans Social Reproduction

Institute of Historical Research Queering Marxist [Trans]Feminism: Queer and Trans Social Reproduction Nat Raha (University of Sussex) Despite the recent resurgence of social reproduction theory and Marxist feminist political praxis, the social reproduction of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) lives remains under-theorised. While heterosexuality as a form of work has long since been considered as part of Marxist feminism’s analysis, the consideration of queer sexualities, and the reproduction of life and labour-power outside and beyond of the cis-, heteronormative nuclear family, have been sidelined in the canon of Marxist Feminism. Bridging the theoretical work of queer Marxism, Black feminism and trans studies, and the political praxis of LGBTQ groups Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries and Wages Due Lesbians, this paper will address the expanded definition of social reproduction necessary to understand the social reproduction of LGBTQ lives. The paper ...
