Interpreting Food at Museums and Historic Sites Webinar is an AASLH Continuing Education recorded webinar. This webinar is about strategies for using food and food history to develop interpretation with depth and significance. This event is taught by Michelle Moon and AASLH. Food is such a friendly topic that it’s often thought of as a “hook” for engaging visitors to museums and historic sites—a familiar way into other topic, or a sensory element to round out a living history interpretation. But food is more than just a hook—it’s a topic all its own, with its own history and its own uncertain future, and deserving of a central place in historic interpretation.

With audiences more interested in food than ever before, and new research in food studies bringing interdisciplinary approaches to this complicated but compelling subject, museums and historic sites have an opportunity to draw new audiences and infuse new meaning into their food presentations. This Interpreting Food at Museums and Historic Sites webinar will provide an introduction to strategies for using food and food history to develop interpretation with depth and significance, making relevant connections to contemporary issues and visitor interests. Join Michelle Moon and AASLH as we discuss how the field can better use our love of food to share our love of history.
