A talk with Rachel Black from Connecticut College.


Can people taste climate change in their local cuisines? What impacts might these changes in taste have on people's identities and social order? There has been a great deal of scholarly activity around the pressing issue of the climate crisis and food security. It is true that people need to eat. However, what and how people eat is also important. In this talk, Black will discuss her brief fieldwork in 2021 and her reflections on why it is critical that we consider the cultural impacts of climate change on forms of intangible cultural heritage such as cuisines. A Table! - An interdisciplinary virtual speaker series on eating French -- is co-sponsored by the departments of French & Francophone studies,anthropology, Middle East studies and philosophy, The Center for Sustainability Education, and the Food Studies Certificate Program.
