Cultures of Culinary Preservation: Domestic Arts, Foreign Foodways, and Race in Early Modern Britain
Dr. Park asks the question, “Was food preservation a domesticating act?” Through close reading of Folger rare books and manuscripts, including manuscript recipe books, domestic manuals, botanicals, and travel literature, Dr. Park will explore ways in which preservation and decay of foods reflected broader social concerns about the provenance and “otherness” of food-stuffs in a globalizing world.
