Women and Food book display

November 30th, 2009

Stop by the third floor to browse a new display of selections from the Women’s Collection related to food, the theme of this year’s common book, In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan. There are many ways to interact with the Go Big Read book ideas, including the various ways women interact with food. The topics go beyond eating and body image.

Consider the following titles:

  • Alice Waters and Chez Panisse: the romantic, impractical, often eccentric, ultimately brilliant making of a food revolution, by Thomas McNamee.
  • Eat my words: reading women’s lives through the cookbooks they wrote, by Janet Theophano
  • From Betty Crocker to feminist food studies: critical perspectives on women and food, edited by Arlene Voski Avakian and Barbara Haber
  • Hunger’s table: women, food & politics, by Margaret Randall
  • Tangled routes: women, work, and globalization on the tomato trail, by Deborah Barndt

Find these and many more in 3rd floor center, just outside of room 3250 where the Women’s Collection is held. As with all College Library displays, these titles may be checked out.
