Wednesday, March 21, 6:00 P.M.
Wollman Hall, enter at 66 West 12th Street
Admission: $5; free to all students and New School faculty, staff, and alumni with ID.
At a time when food systems are rapidly changing, and not always for the better, people are interested in the origins of what they eat, what people before them ate, and what they are likely to eat in the future. Panelists: Paul Freedman, professor of history, Yale University; Amy Bentley, associate professor of food studies, NYU; and Amy Trubek, associate professor of nutrition and food sciences, University of Vermont. New School Food Studies coordinator Fabio Parasecoli moderates.
Sponsored by the Food Studies Program at The New School for Public Engagement.
