Conference poster: Tobacco through time: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on the History and Legacy of the Use and Commodification of Tobacco’
We are excited to announce our first free online conference, which will take place online on afternoons of the 6th and 7th of December 2021. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers interested in all aspects of the history tobacco including its identification, use, commodification, systems of production and trade and modern legacies. Themes of the conference will include, but are not limited to, exploring the varying social and economic roles played by tobacco and how this influenced demand for the plant; How and why particular knowledge about the plant and its properties were accepted or rejected by society; How did the social and economic priorities of the early modern period influence tobacco uptake and what was/is the impact of the structures designed to produce, trade and export tobacco; How can perspectives of tobacco’s past illuminate future outcomes for the consumption of newly emerging products and intoxicants?
See linked poster for more details.
