CULINARY HISTORIANS OF NEW YORK AND THE NEW SCHOOL PRESENT|
Thursday, February 26, 2015
Whether a laid-back Sunday meal of coddled eggs, champagne and orange juice, or a gendered, class-based conflict, the American brunch packs a load of social and cultural history between English muffins. Brunch has become a modern meal of leisure, but its history is far from restful; this meal's past is lively and fraught with tension.
Professor Farha Ternikar will discuss the history of the modern brunch as a culinary event and as a mirror of culture. She will explore the socioeconomic conflicts that brunch brings to the surface, with a view into the dining rooms, verandas, and kitchens where it has been prepared, served, and enjoyed.
A reception will precede the talk with brunch foods, Bloody Marys and Screwdrivers.
Farha Ternikar is an associate professor of Sociology at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, where she teaches Food and Culture, Gender and Society, and the Sociology of Food. Her book Brunch: A History (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2014) is a global and social history of brunch in the United States, Western Europe, South Asia and the Middle East. Her research was included in the 201213 exhibition Lunch Hour at the New York Public Library.
