What Food Teaches About Appetite
BY MARY BERGIN
@ VOL 5
ON APR 11, 2013
"Appetites, like landscapes, change with the passage of time. When we make decisions about food, we reveal our values, quirks, obsessions, ethnic pride and more."
In What Food Teaches Appetite, from PechaKucha Night Madison, Vol. 5, Mary Bergin showcases much of the small-town fare in her native rural Wisconsin, and shares the stories of how many of the dishes came to be. Sharing her pride for Wisconsin's German roots, she connects the historical dishes to the people who keep the traditional recipes safe and preserve the neighborhood markets and cherished eateries that make her community special.

Greetings from the colonies: Postcards from a painful past

"Some [postcards] promoted colonial ideology and served to uphold the supposed hierarchy of the world, with white societies on top."
The Golden Age of postcards (1907-1915) coincided with the popularization of anthropology and renewed interest in European colonies. Colonial postcards from this time illustrate some of the most prominent ideas of colonialism and beliefs regarding ethnic hierarchy. In Greetings from the Colonies: Postcards from a Painful Past from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 27, writer and scholar Inge Oosterhoff retraces these ideas, as well as the ways in which France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and other colonizing countries viewed and propagandized their “colonized peoples.”
