Join us for a lecture by Juliana Rowen Barton, the 2017 Dean's Fellowship recipient in the History of Home Economics in the College of Human Ecology.
She will examine the kitchen as the site of domestic debates about modernism, technology, taste, and identity in the mid-twentieth century, and talk about its role as an agent of progression and regression in American culture.

Her work has been recognized with support from the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. She is currently the Andrew W. Mellon Graduate Fellow in Modern and Contemporary Design at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where she has co-curated “Design in Revolution: A 1960s Odyssey” (2018) with Kathryn Bloom Hiesinger.
