“Post Gender Food Writing: Beyond the English Lady, Betty Crocker & Hot Shot Wine Guy,” a Panel Discussion, March 3 at NYU’s Fales Library

February 16, 2011
N-255, 2010-11

New York University’s Fales Library, the home of one of the nation’s largest and prestigious archives in food studies, will host a panel discussion entitled “Post Gender Food Writing: Beyond the English Lady, Betty Crocker & Hot Shot Wine Guy,” on Thursday, March 3, 2011 from 4:00-6:00 p.m. at the Fales Library, third floor, Elmer Holmes Bobst Library, 70 Washington Square South, (at LaGuardia Place). [Subways A,C,E, B,D,M to West 4th Street; 6 line to Astor Place; R train to 8th Street.] 

From the voices of M.F.K. Fischer and Julia Child to the smack-down of Bobby Flay and the essence of Emeril, the conversation, moderated by Clark Wolf, host of the Fales Library’s “Critical Topics in Food Series,” will center on the notion that perhaps the foodie culture has moved beyond the obvious culturally-constructed notions of gender, and has arrived in a place where life is more than a mere bowl of cherries, and real men do admit to eating quiche.

About Fales Library and Special Collections:

The Fales Library, comprising nearly 200,000 volumes, and over 8,000 linear feet of archive and manuscript materials, houses the Fales Collection of rare books and manuscripts in English and American literature, the Downtown Collection, the Food and Cookery Collection and the general Special Collections of the NYU Libraries. The Fales Collection was given to NYU in 1957 by DeCoursey Fales in memory of his father, Haliburton Fales. It is especially strong in English literature from the middle of the 18th century to the present, documenting developments in the novel. The Downtown Collection documents the downtown New York art, performance, and literary scenes from 1975 to the present and is extremely rich in archival holdings, including extensive film and video objects. The Food and Cookery Collection is a vast, and rapidly expanding collection of books and manuscripts documenting food and foodways with particular emphasis on New York City. Other strengths of the collection include the Berol Collection of Lewis Carroll Materials, the Robert Frost Library, the Kaplan and Rosenthal Collections of Judaica and Hebraica and the manuscript collections of Elizabeth Robins and Erich Maria Remarque. The Fales Library preserves manuscripts and original editions of books that are rare or important not only because of their texts, but also because of their value as artifacts.
