An Archive of Taste: Race and Eating in the Early United States


By Lauren F. Klein

Associate Professor in the Departments of English and Quantitative Theory and Methods

An Archive of Taste examines the gustatory origins of aesthetic taste in early American literature, showing how thinking about eating can help to tell new stories about the range of people who worked to establish a cultural foundation for the U.S. Lauren F. Klein reframes the philosophical work of food and its meaning for those who prepare, serve, and consume it.
