This program has been postponed until further notice.

Original Scheduled Program Dates: Wednesdays 6:30 – 8pm on May 20, 27, June 3, 10 and 17

A reading and discussion program sponsored by Humanities NY in conjunction with Albany Diocesan Cemeteries.

This is a five-part series with 90-minute sessions.

Come join us in The Living Room Art Gallery located in the Visitors Center at Historic St. Agnes Cemetery, 48 Cemetery Avenue, Menands, NY for an interesting and enlightening program series offered free of charge.

This reading and discussion series explores the complex, often overlooked personal, social, and cultural relationships we have with food, from the politics of food production to diet fads. Led by Professors Annette Crawford-Harris and Linda S. Pezzolesi, participants will engage in lively conversation based on assigned readings from texts selected by noted restaurant critic Mimi Sheraton. This series will explore an aspect of our culture that often gets taken for granted: food. Food provides both nourishment and pleasure, of course, but under the surface of each meal lies a series of complex interactions and entanglements. Working with histories, novels, and journalism, this series exposes some of the issues that lie on our plates. Reading materials will be provided to participants in advance.
