OK… Chiles en Nogada, at last! Pati Jinich Mexican Table

Globalisation. humans migrate. globalisation has accelerated the rate of involuntary migration while at the same time connected more of us to one another via various information superhighways. so here is a particular dish tied to the seasonality of produce (a sense of about food and time and place very much being wiped out by globalisation ….), missed by those who migrated, appreciated by those not of these regions by virtue of their immigrant friends and neighbors and this globalisation information superhighway. add in memories, elders, ancestors, families, friends, neighborhoods, traditional markets …. ceremonies, rituals …. and you have in one brief essay, one dish, one food item, a perfect illustration of why we have organized our semester the way we have.

Why Young Black Chefs Need Black Mentors: Eater

Globalization. is food just about food? as we have already outlined during our first session, of course not — it is about history, family, memory, the economy, migration, culture, identity, career …. gender roles, social class, tradition, faith …. the list is nearly infinite. for our class, we use it as a microcosm — case study — on the one hand super accessible — all humans require food; and super flexible — you pick and choose which of these facets to use to connect your particular food and foodways to the broader, global patterns we are studying.

Historians Reveal Multiple Cradles Of Civilization Each Independently Developed Chicken Tender Basket: The Onion

Historiography and Globalisation. well, not quite what i had in mind based on our sessions this week, though i had a good chuckle this morning reading this article. bonus for the classic old school textbook illustrations of these ancient chicken tender baskets …. 🙂 in all seriousness though — for world historians the issue of whether certain things — written language, pottery, etc. — are independently developed (and if so, why ….) versus learned/borrowed are as controversial as the fundamental issues we have discussed (linear versus circular; individuals make history versus history making individuals ….) for Globalisation, these global food/foodways patterns — poor people food, dumplings, meat wrapped in some type of bread, sausages, noodles, soup — are the microcosms we use to access global and historical patterns and characteristics of globalisation. The Onion started at Madison Wisconsin when i was a student there, and they have had a long history of writers taking class material and turning them into articles. Professor Liang
