The Trouble with Food

A Dartmouth Library Book Talk

Thursday, April 26, 2018
4:30pm-6:00pm
Baker Library, East Reading Room
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars

What constitutes “American” in our cuisine has always depended on a liberal crossing of borders, from the “line in the sand” that separates Mexico and the United States, to the grassland boundary with Canada, to the imagined divide in our collective minds between “our” food and “their” food.  The stories told in Food Across Borders highlight the contiguity between the intimate decisions we make as individuals concerning what we eat and the social and geopolitical processes we enact to secure nourishment, territory and belonging. Co-editors Matt Garcia (Dartmouth) and Melanie Dupuis (Pace University) will be joined by Teresa Mares (UVM) to present this book.

Cosponsored by: the Leslie Center for the Humanities, the Dartmouth College Library, the Department of Geography, the Environmental Studies Program, the Program in Latin American, Latino/a & Caribbean Studies, and the Department of Spanish & Portuguese
