Topic: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the American Cheese: Food, Status, and the Myth of Virtuous Consumption

To register for this program, please click here.

Speaker: Margot Finn
U-M Lecturer Margot Finn will walk through the main argument of her 2017 book Discriminating Taste: How class anxiety created the American food revolution, where she makes the case that by cultivating what we eat, and how we eat, and how we talk about what we eat, we can perform and embody a desirable class identity.
Margot Finn received her Ph.D. in American Culture from the University of Michigan, where she teaches undergraduate courses on food studies, obesity, and the history and philosophy of liberal education as a LEO Lecturer.

“In this rollicking, riveting celebration of lifespan feminism, Douglas critiques the gendered ageism of Big Pharma, cosmetics-pushers, and Hollywood, savages mansplaining statistics, and urges boomer women to take to the barricades to safeguard the nation’s social and financial safety net. In Our Prime is personal, powerful, and persuasive. A must-read.” – Kathleen Jamieson, director, Annenberg Public Policy Center, University of Pennsylvania

In Our Prime is available in hardcover locally at Literati and Nicola’s bookstores, from Amazon.com, and the Ann Arbor Public Library, and digitally from the Ypsilanti Public Library. The paperback edition can be pre-ordered for scheduled release March 2.
