Museums at Night: The Huguenot Table

May 15, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


The Huguenot table: Eating in Exile

Migration and resettlement in a new country can have major impacts upon cultural practices and experiences. In this talk, Sara Pennell will explore how Huguenot communities found their culinary feet in their new communities in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

We are holding this talk to celebrate ‘Museums at Night’ This is the UK-wide festival of Lates in museums and galleries, produced by Culture24, the Brighton-based arts charity dedicated to shining a light on Britain’s sparkling culture and heritage.

Dr Sara Pennell is Senior Lecturer in the Department of History, Politics and Social Sciences at the University of Greenwich. She is the author of many publications on the early modern history and the material culture of food, including highly acclaimed ‘The Making of the English Kitchen 1600-1850’ (2016).

There will also be an opportunity to explore the galleries as part of this event from 5.45pm

The talk will be followed by questions and an opportunity to talk to the speaker.
