Ian Miller is a Government of Ireland postdoctoral scholar at the Centre for the History of Medicine in Ireland, University College Dublin. He is currently preparing his second monograph Reforming Food in Post-Famine Ireland: Medicine, Science and Improvement, 1845-1922. This offers a history of food in modern Ireland, and asks why and how post-Famine dietary change occurred from medical, scientific, cultural, political and social perspectives.
