Tasting the Past. Towards an Entangled History of Food and Recipes (1400-2000) is a blended-learning programme that consists of online seminars, a lecture and an intensive spring school that will take place in late March/early April 2021 in Tübingen. Thus, the project will combine both the possibilities of virtual learning and the acquisition of knowledge over an extended period with a compact course taught face-to-face in Tübingen.
Bringing together students from different CIVIS universities will allow us not only to draw on the different language skills and resources available but also make this a ‘real life’ experience of the transnational perspectives and frameworks historians need to address today. Taught with a strong focus on explorative learning methods and peer exchange, the seminar and the spring school are set to provide also first-hand experience of collaborative research central to all discussions of global and entangled history.
The spring school is organised jointly by the eight CIVIS member Universities: University of Tübingen as host of the programme together with academics from the Universities of Aix-Marseille, Athens, Bucharest, Brussels, Madrid, Rome and Stockholm.
