VIRTUAL LECTURE: Digesting Wilderness

August 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


$9 – $10
Florence Griswold Museum, 96 Lyme Street
Old Lyme, CT 06371 United States


Is there such a thing as wild food? Building on the central theme of Dana Sherwood’s exhibit, this talk will examine cultural notions of wilderness through food and look at the ways in which Sherwood blurs the lines between the human and animal worlds. From hunting and gathering to foraging and creating elaborate pièce montée, Prof. Rachel Black, Associate Professor & Chair of the Anthropology Department at Connecticut College, will examine food as a cultural object that can bring us closer to the environment or attempt to distance us from what we think of as the natural world.
