|Spring 2012 Food for Thought Colloquium to begin in February at Lewis University
Published: January 30, 2012.
Lewis University will begin its Food for Thought Colloquium for the Spring 2012 semester with several presentations in the month of February. Events will be held at 2 p.m. in room AS-158A located at the University’s main campus in Romeoville. All events are free of charge.
Faculty members from Lewis University are leading an eight-month exploration of food, foodies, health, meals and culture. The Lewis University History Center and the Arts and Ideas Program support the "Food for Thought" series that engages all in a multi-disciplinary conversation on a vital topic: food. There is a personal connection to food, a cultural connection to food, a global connection to food and, fundamentally, a biological connection to food. Food is related to growth, to health, to illness, but it is also the source of community, the heart of the family, and joy.
The series is being sponsored by a grant from the Colonel Stephen S. and Lyla Doherty Center for Aviation and Health Research and the Illinois Arts Council. For more information about the series, contact Dr. Ewa Bacon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
