In April, I'll be joining a dozen or so historians in a convening of the Public Historians and Local Food Movement Working Group at the National Council on Public History annual conference in Ottawa, Canada. The working group is led by Michelle Moon and Cathy Stanton, who've encouraged us to begin the conversation through a series of entries on Cathy's blog. Mine, inspired by a photo that came through by Facebook feed one morning (thanks Katya Kuchar) explores the connections between the personal and the political as we think about food--in Ukraine, in the United States, and in museums. For the full post (and other great posts as well) please go here.
And of course, remember that your photos: of your lunch in Ukraine, of your mom's pickles, or old family dinners, can inspire us to. Please share!
