What’s On Your Plate? The History and Politics of Food

In this panel discussion, Barnard faculty members Hilary Callahan, Kim F. Hall, Deborah Valenze, and Paige West engage in an interdisciplinary conversation about the past and present social, geopolitical, rhetorical, and environmental factors that influence how food—including items as seemingly ordinary as sugar, coffee, and milk—shapes culture and politics. Moderated by Elizabeth Castelli, this panel took place on November 1, 2011 at Barnard College in New York City.
