Food: A Journey Through Three Centuries of Human History (Zoom)

Tuesday April 25, 2023
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Fee: $10 resident/$15 nonresident

The story of human history is intimately tied to our need for food. The culture we have built around food offers a unique frame to examine the evolution of social and political systems, economic empires, human migrations, and so much more. Join award winning professor Ken Albala as we take a deep dive into the exploration, global trade, and food culture of the fifteenth–seventeenth centuries. Together, we’ll discover the food that made history!

Guest Lecturer: Ken Albala is the Tully Knoles Endowed Professor of History at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. He has published twenty-seven books including academic monographs, single subject food books, reference works, translations, and cookbooks. He has also edited more than one hundred titles in various food series and has done two food history shows on Wondrium. He grew up in Monmouth County.
