For those who could not attend, here is the video of the very well-attended event on Food History that The New School hosted on March 21, 2012. Some among the most respected scholars and authors in the field participated in the panel, followed by very stimulating questions from the audience. Far from being an obscure academic topic, Food History seems to resonate with our contemporary sensibilities!

Panelists include: Paul Freedman, professor of history, Yale University; Amy Bentley, associate professor of food studies, New York University; Amy Trubek, associate professor of nutrition and food sciences, University of Vermont; Michael Krondl author of Sweet Invention: A History of Dessert; and Maya Joseph, New School faculty member. New School Food Studies coordinator Fabio Parasecoli moderates.

    Extremely interesting panel! Will there be a transcript for the conversation?

      Unfortunately there won’t be a transcript, but will keep the video available in the future.

    Thanks! And keep up the excellent work!

  3. Would it be possible for you to list each of the panelists by name? I’m new to Food Studies and just beginning to identify scholars and their work.
