Book Signing: How the Other Half Ate

Date: Wednesday, March 26, 2014 @ 12:15pm


At 12:15pm on March 26, 2014 at the Rowan Barnes and Noble, Dr. Katherine Turner (History) will discuss her new book, How the Other Half Ate:  A History of Working Class Meals at the Turn of the Century (2014).  How the Other Half Ate is a deep exploration of the changing food landscape in American working-class families from industrialization through the 1950s.  Relevant to students across a range of disciplines—history, economics, sociology, urban studies, women's studies, and food studies— Dr. Turner's work illustrates how families experienced food and cooking during the so-called age of abundance and shows how America's working class, in a multitude of ways, has shaped the foods we eat today.  Dr. Turner will take questions and sign copies of her book after her talk.
