Proceedings of the XIX Congress of the International Commission for the Anthropology of Food (ICAF), International Union of Ethnological and Anthropological Sciences (IUEAS), Poysdorf, Austria, Dec. 4 - Dec. 7, 2003
Worldwide hunting is subject to a manifest cultural change. Folk hunting rituals are in danger of disappearing. Therefore the idea of this conference was to connect hunting and celebrating hunting luck all over the world and to define the social impact of these activities. The different contributions are focused around the topics hunting as preservation of environment, the interaction of hunting and cultural change, the controversy of hunting for food and pleasure, and the social impact of rituals and celebrations on the hunting community.
