Food Historian Frederick Douglass Opie shares his favorite mp3 downloads this week.
Take a look at my Saturday obituary on Eugene Genovese is contribution to the field of foodways in the academy. Like Eldridge Cleaver, Genovese became a radical turned conservative in later years. I was writing about him while completing a chapter on foodways in a American Historical Association commissioned anthology on the topic this week when I heard the news that he had passed. The forthcoming anthology includes some top scholars in the field such as Jessica Harris. The University of California Press is publishing the book. I roll out my Hispanic History Month series this week. Below are my suggested downloads this week. So glad I found Anne Bramley podcast site Eat Feed, she doing some great interviews which I recommend. Hope to see you October 9 at the University Maryland College Park for my upcoming lecture.
