The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center
Every Bite a Taste of History:  How Food Enriches our Understanding of the World
Presenter: Jonathan Reynolds, professor of history
Department of History and Geography


Lecture Description

World History can be scary. Is it really possible to learn and understand thousands of years of human history? How about doing it all in about an hour, simply from discussing the food we eat? Well, almost everything we eat is a result of a long and complex history of interactions between humans, the environment and one another. Racing across ten millennia, Dr. Jonathon Reynolds, professor of history, will examine technology, gender, crop domestication and long-distance trade as they relate to the world's rich and diverse history  and food.
