From the Fales Library's Manuscript Cookbooks Conference. Featuring speakers Marvin Taylor, Rebecca Federman, Anne Garner, Nina Nazionale, and Charlotte Priddle. The speakers discuss cookbooks as an entry point into their cultural and social contexts. What can a cookbook reveal about publishing practices, literacy rates, female agency, and more? They also discuss best practices for archiving ephemera and the concept of embodied practice, stressing the importance of physical objects as sources of information and contextualizing forces.
