I am glad to be able to announce the NYPL Short-Term Research Fellowships, though sorry that again they are only for people who can legally work in the US.

If anyone is interested in applying for a Food Studies Fellowship at the Pforzheimer Collection, we have Thomas Love Peacock's ms. recipe books, a manuscript of his entitled "The Science of Cookery," in addition to a number of published cookbooks (including vegetarian cookbooks and volumes promoting vegetarian diet).

Best,

Liz Denlinger

Techne: Women's Art and Artifice in Early Modern Iberia and the New World. GEMELA session at the M/MLA 11/7-11/11/2013.

As wives, mothers, servants, and slaves, women were responsible for such essential domestic tasks as food preparation and family medicine in early modern Spain and the New World. Their labor required extensive knowledge and practical skill—techne—that discomfitted uninitiated men, including authors, doctors, and agents of the law. Inquisitors, for instance, tried a disproportionately large number of women for Judaizing precisely because they prepared suspicious family meals. In literature, figures like Celestina bespeak profound anxiety over skilled women's potential to undermine the patriarchal lineage system by remaking virgins.
