We’re excited to announce that Public History and the Food Movement is now available!
To celebrate, we’ve added a couple of new things to this website: some short excerpts from our interviews with eight of our favorite practitioners in the worlds of food and farm history and organizing, as well as a PDF of the Introduction, which we hope will whet your appetite for reading the rest of the book.
Welcome to the website for Michelle Moon and Cathy Stanton’s new book Public History and the Food System: Adding the Missing Ingredient, due to be published by Routledge in early fall 2017.
Return here for updates, including a sample chapter, excerpts from the practitioner interviews that are included in the book, and space for networking with others who are interested in moving toward engaged and innovative modes of interpreting food and farming.
BTW, the beautiful image above, which appears on the cover of the book, was taken by photographer Jeremy Mundth. It shows an outdoor art piece entitled “Cribs,” created by artist Brenda Baker for the Wormfarm Institute‘s Farm/Art DTour at its annual Fermentation Fest in Wisconsin.
