ALIMENTOPIA Project - CETAPS The Portuguese Vegetarian Database

  • 1. CETAPS/University of Porto (Portugal)


One of the main goals of the ALIMENTOPIA/Utopian Foodways Project (2016-2020) was to rescue from the collective amnesia an unprecedented phenomenon in Portugal in the early 20th century: the Portuguese Vegetarian Society. As a priceless cultural artifact, O Vegetariano: Mensário Naturista Ilustrado, published uninterruptedly between 1909 and 1935, was more than just the official organ of the Vegetarian Society of Portugal (SVP), founded in 1911. It was indeed an aggregating platform for a community that reached, at its peak, more than 3,500 subscribers. All the entries of all the publications are indexed in this searchable database, making it a useful tool for any researcher working on Food, Utopian movements, vegetarianism, naturism and Portuguese History.


ALIMENTOPIA / Utopian Foodways Project, a project on Utopia, Food and the Future, was funded by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) and the European Programme Compete 2020 [Ref. POCI-01-0145-FEDER-016680 (PTDC/CPC-ELT/5676/2014)].
