Emily J.H. Contois is an Assistant Professor of Media Studies at the University of Tulsa and author of Diners, Dudes and Diets: How Gender and Power Collide in Food Media and Culture. Our conversation with Emily will explore the “gendering” of various foods and activities related to cooking and eating. Join us for the whole series to explore where our beliefs, emotional connections, and behavior patterns about food come from. After all, food informs and is informed by our identity. The foods that we prepare, eat, and enjoy are reflections of racial or ethnic backgrounds, geographical provenance, family histories, and - as we'll explore in this virtual series - gender. PLEASE NOTE: This program is free for teachers and students thanks to a generous gift from CT Humanities. Please email email@example.com if you are a teacher or student and you would like to register for one or all of the sessions.
