Material cultures and daily practices play a central role in the invention and (re)production of identities, politics and economics in the context of historical experiences of migration and displacement. Following this premise, the aim of this session is to analyze daily practices and materialities, especially those related to food –the way of cooking and food preparation as well as its consumption-, in the construction, manipulation and negotiation of social identities, power relations and economies of production and exchange in different Mediterranean colonial contexts. Through different study-cases, this session wants to explore the continuities, innovations and/or hybridations experimented by several Mediterranean communities between 8th and 4th centuries BC, relating them with the economic, political and social dynamics occurred in their specific contexts, the construction of new foodscapes as well as their local and global networks.
