  Event Information
Dr. Tracey Deutsch: “The Julia Child Project”
Date:  Thursday, October 24th, 2013
Time:  7:00pm
Location:  Gary Ransdell Hall Auditorium
Description:  

 

Deutsch sees in Julia Child’s life the growing centrality of food to American culture, politics, and middle-class identity. Child’s success points to powerful personality and the appeal of French cuisine, but also to an emerging infrastructure of media, policy, domestic labor, and middle and upper-class socializing around dinners. She argues that Child’s extraordinary life was itself a project, one rooted in profound changes in American life.

This is a swipe-able event.
