Professor Andrew Godley will set freedom food in historical context. Previous generations intensified poultry farming. Welfare fears and other factors soon brought new pressures. Convened as part of the Being Human Festival of the Humanities, this series of events will explore freedom and examine the hopes and fears associated with Our Country Lives. It will touch on ownership, land use, labour, food, movement, and decision-making. At each event a different researcher will join a colleague from the Museums and Collections service. Together they will lead visitors on a conversational tour of the new Museum's displays before taking them behind the scenes where specially-selected itemsĀ  from the archives, library and object collections will form the basis of further discussion. Event held at: The Museum of English Rural Life, Redlands Road, Reading, Berkshire. RG1 5EX
