I am a historian interested in how contested spaces in the history of food systems [re]produce regional cultures which, as a fallen anthropologist and ex-foodie, I define broadly through a political economy/ecology framework to include politics, economics, and the environment. This website exists to share thoughts, ideas, sources, and publications encountered in my journey in the doctoral program at the MSU history department. The site began during a Digital Humanities course at MSU in the spring of 2021 and I figured this was a great opportunity to establish an online presence. I expanded the site to include pages for past work and current progress (along with some slap-dash stuff like a place to post my random obscure recordings). So, take a look around. I am currently in my third year of doctoral studies and new things will continually appear as I move through the program and expand and contract foci.
