In describing her lecture, “Delicious! Setting the Table for a Food Exhibit at Harvard,” Professor Chaplin writes:
Each of your actions, all of these things, they have histories. The fork, the plate, the food eaten, you the cook or eater, the other people at the table or waiting on the table, the decisions about what tastes good (or not), these are parts of human history and of American history. The Harvard Museums of Science and Culture are beginning to plan an exhibit on the history of food and eating, with special attention to Harvard’s food history. I’m part of the exhibition team—please join me as I share a report on our plans and progress.”
