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

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.
