I’m a history professor by profession. My training is in American labor history, but the problem with that is that whenever it goes on the schedule I can’t get enough students to sign up for it so that the class survives. Therefore, next semester I’m trying to pioneer a subfield that nobody really has training in: Food History.
I’ve already ordered my books (all of which I’ve already read and recommend highly):
I’ve also ordered a bunch of books with article length pieces from which I’ll assign pieces:
As this course is going to be a reading seminar, I’m afraid I don’t have enough stuff (particularly as I won’t assign everything in the collections). Therefore, I’m looking for good essays on the history of food in America that I could just link to in the final syllabus when I write it. It doesn’t matter what kind of food, my hope is to cover everything from Breakfast through midnight snacks with everything in between.
So ya got anything for me? [URLs are crucial here, of course.]
