'To Have and to Hold: Food Storage and the Emergence of Social Differentiation'
February 23-25, 2012, Amerind Foundation, Dragoon, Arizona
Organizer: Ian Kuijt (U. Notre Dame)

Food storage-here defined as the purposeful investment in the curation of material items, with intent of later use-was a major evolutionary transition. In this workshop, researchers explored how food storage represents a flexible strategy for controlling time, a means of mitigating periods of scarcity, and a way of potentially extending periods of bounty forward in time and altering human relations and improving the human condition. Scholars explored practical aspects of food storage, including the physical conditions of food storage, the visible and invisible materiality of food storage, spoilage, the shelf life of different foods, access to stored foods, and how storage may have been embedded in different cultural and economic contexts. Drawing upon geographically focused New World and Old World case studies, this workshop explored the intersection with questions pertinent to the emergence of social inequality, the forager-farmer transition, and how past and present human communities deal with risk. By pulling apart the complex, and poorly understood, interconnections between the things people eat and store, population growth, and the development and control of an excess and surplus of food, these papers help researchers to understand how storage created the potential to reframe social relationships within human communities.
