History Seminar Series: Dr. Gabriella Petrick on Food History, Friday, Oct 2, 2:30 pm, in A122.

From Dr. James Murton:
The History Seminar Series returns for another year with a talk by historian Gabriella M. Petrick, visiting us from New York University. She will speak on "Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter: A Call for the Centrality of Taste in History."

Gabriella's previous work is on the development of industrial food systems in the modern U.S., and this talk is derived from her new research on the history of taste. Dr. Petrick is Assistant Professor Food Studies in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies and Public Health at NYU Steinhardt. For more information see:
