Virtual Lecture February 2014: Deborah Gewertz

The anthropology of food does far more than celebrate the world’s various foodways.  In this lecture, Deborah Gewertz will show that anthropologists study food because of its cross-cultural significance in, for example, creating groups, building kinship, defining the holy, verifying personal and moral value, and shaping relations of equality and inequality.
