Re: HIstoriography of New Deal food and nutrition policy

If anyone is interested in nutrition labeling, I've written two articles:

"Food Standards in the United States: The Case of the Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich" in Food, Science, Policy and Regulation in the Twentieth Century, eds. David F. Smith and Jim Phillips (Routledge, 2000), pp. 167 - 189.

"Proscribing Deception: The Gould Net Weight Amendment and the Origins of Mandatory Nutrition Labeling" in Setting Nutritional Standards: Theory, Policies, and Practices, eds. Elizabeth Neswald, David F. Smith, and Ulrike Thoms (Rutgers, 2016), pp. 164-194.

Bodies That Eat, Bodies That Drink. Biocultural Approaches to Nutrition, Incorporation and Commensality. 11th International Symposium of CORPUS

Your network editor has reposted this from H-Announce. The byline reflects the original authorship.

Apologies for cross-posting but wanted to make sure H-Nutrition list members saw this CFP for a conference in Spain in May 2018.
