Food, famine, and regulation

A major strand of work on famine, philanthropy, and the politics of food is being led by David Nally who is preparing a major monograph on this theme. Other key areas include the history of alcohol consumption, temperance, and social regulation marked by David Beckingham's monograph The licensed city: regulating drink in Liverpool, 1830-1920 (Liverpool: Liverpool University Press, 2017) and histories of prostitution and sexuality led by Philip Howell and Olga Petri.
