Tuesday ‘Think & Drink’ to explore American attitudes toward food

by | Oct 14, 2013

This month’s installment of Humanities Washington’s “Think & Drink” series is “Food for Thought: GMOs, Home-Cooked Meals, and the American Relationship to Food.” It starts at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15 at Naked City Brewery & Taphouse, 8564 Greenwood Ave N.

The free event will examine the way Americans relate to food – from home-cooked meals to grab-and-go snacks, the obesity epidemic to diet trends, and more. We will also talk about the upcoming Initiative 522, which would require labeling for genetically modified food in our state, and ask how this initiative relates to cultural trends and attitudes.

This Think & Drink discussion will be led by food experts Julia Harrison and Derek Wood and moderated by Ross Reynolds. Harrison is an anthropologist focusing on desserts and sweets and a member of the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau. Wood is the chair of the biology department at Seattle Pacific University and a professor of microbiology at the University of Washington. Reynolds is host of KUOW’s The Record.
