Thinking about eating often leads to thinking about people and their social world. We like to feel good, and eating helps this. But food also is highly emotive and conflicting. Wars are fought over food. By looking at archaeological examples of meals and food production, we can trace not only people’s foodways but also their feelings about their landscape and social world.  

Speaker Christine Hastorf is professor of anthropology at the University of California at Berkeley. Her work centers on paleoethnobotany, food studies, past meanings of the everyday, political economy, and ritual in middle range societies of the Andean region of South America.
