Comfort Foodways* During a Pandemic

One must eat to survive of course, but how has the pandemic affected what or how you're eating? Join the Wood County District Public Library for Comfort Foodways During a Pandemic, which explores how the pandemic has impacted our eating habits. Lucy Long, Director of the Center for Food and Culture, leads this online discussion on Wednesday, January 20 at 11:00 a.m. During this discussion, we will also explore Foodways, or the eating habits and culinary practices of a people, region, or historical period, and how COVID-19 has changed these Foodways.

Lucy M. Long directs the independent nonprofit Center for Food and Culture and teaches in American studies, ethnic studies, folklore, tourism, and nutrition at Bowling Green State University. With degrees in Folklore and Ethnomusicology, she focuses on food, music, and dance as mediums for meaning, identity, community, and power. Her publications include Ethnic American Cooking (2016), Honey: A Global History (2017), and Comfort Food Meanings and Memories (2017). She has also written numerous articles and produced documentary films and museum exhibits about food traditions in the Midwest.
