MALS Alumna Book: Claire Stewart
Alumna Claire Stewart (MALS 2012) authored As Long as We Both Shall Eat: A History of Wedding Food and Feasts (Rowman and Littlefield, 2017). Examining the various food customs associated with weddings in America and around the world, Stewart not only provides a rich account of the foods most loved and frequently served at wedding celebrations, she also offers a glimpse into the customs and celebrations themselves, as they are experienced in the West and in various other cultures. She sheds light on the historical and contemporary significance of wedding food, and explores patterns of the varieties of conspicuous consumption linked to American wedding feasts in particular.
Stewart is Assistant Professor of Hospitality Management at the NYC College of Technology, CUNY.
