Having Fun With Food: A Brief History of The American Way of Eating
In this presentation, Richard Wilk (Provost Professor of Anthropology, Indiana University) will argue that rather than being a source of nutrition, in recent North American culture food has become a major source of entertainment. We like to play with our food. He will show how the food industry developed the playful elements of American food in the years after WWII. This history raises an important problem for people interested in changing the American food system today.
