PANEL 4.08

Food and society in Ethiopia: change and continuity

Coordination:
Thomas Guindeuil , Sorbonne1, France;
Liza Debevec , ZRC SAZU, Slovenie/ AAU, Ethiopia .

This panel will discuss dynamics in Ethiopian food practices, crossing anthropological and historical approaches. As a total social fact, food is a complete way to comprehend past and present societies, but this topic has been relatively neglected in both disciplines when dealing with Ethiopia. This topic will look at issues such as invention and re-invention of food traditions, notably through imports of foreign foods, social significance of ingredients and dishes, their evolution and movements between regions of the country and the wider world.
