Over the course of a long and distinguished career, Grieco has been a pioneering figure in Renaissance food history… This opulently illustrated collection brings together a number of Grieco’s most important pieces published over the past several decades… A fitting coda to the admirable career of a pioneer in food history.—Eric Dursteler, Journal of Early Modern History

Grieco’s book, much awaited, maintains his promise of being a milestone in food history, regardless of the time period it covers… A deep inquiry into the mutual relationships between moral and political economies, as well as of knowledge production, and dissemination. For materially and visually-minded historians of science and knowledge this book is a treasure of suggestions, both about the systems of classifications of nature and about the daily life of people elaborating and disseminating knowledge about the edible side of the natural world.—Paolo Savoia, Nuncius

A comprehensive and insightful contribution on the subject of food culture in the Renaissance.—Marco Malvestio, Renaissance and Reformation

Jacket: Memory Speaks: On Losing and Reclaiming Language and Self, by Julie Sedivy, from Harvard University Press

Lost in Translation: Reclaiming Lost Language

In Memory Speaks: On Losing and Reclaiming Language and Self, Julie Sedivy sets out to understand the science of language loss and the potential for renewal. Sedivy takes on the psychological and social world of multilingualism, exploring the human brain’s capacity to learn—and forget—languages at various stages of life. She argues that the struggle to remain connected to an ancestral language and culture is a site of common ground: people from all backgrounds can recognize the crucial role of language in forming a sense of self.
