The Slurpy, Messy History of Ramen
George Solt

Monday, May 19, 2014
It seems a new ramen shop -- or slurp shop -- opens in every New York City borough every month. Ramen has become the new popular fast food with a cult-like following. These rich, salty, steaming bowls of noodle soup have become an international symbol of the cultural prowess of Japanese cuisine.

Ramen's popularity can be attributed to political and economic change on a global scale. Using declassified U.S. government documents and an array of Japanese sources, George Solt reveals ramen's complex history and traces its meteoric rise from humble fuel for the working poor to international icon of Japanese culture.

Ticket price includes reception and ramen slurping samples.

George Solt is the author of "The Untold History of Ramen: How Political Crisis in Japan Spawned a Global Food Craze" (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2014). He holds a PhD in history from University of California, San Diego, and is Assistant Professor of History at NYU. Solt's work considers the connections between the political economic transformation and social reorganization of Japan in the modern era.
