Science Salon & Humanities Hour - Lectures at Lunch for Staff

There is remarkable research and scholarship that surrounds us every day at Northwestern University. Weinberg College staff members host an ongoing series of faculty talks given especially for staff where there is plenty of opportunities to ask questions, discuss, and learn about what the scholars we work with do, and the new knowledge they create.

We are currently working on events for 2021. Please share your thoughts and preferences with us by filling out our survey.

Foods of the Americas: Natives and Newcomers

Every time we munch a bowl of popcorn, order some French fries, or drink some bubble tea, we are eating history: every ingredient and every recipe has a story to tell about Native Americans and immigrants, farmers and cooks, innovations and traditions. This talk traces the surprising histories of some favorite American foods.
