Iowa History 101: The Industrialization and Americanization of Midwesterners’ Diets

March 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

As agriculture industrialized during the 20th century, farm production became less diverse and more commercial. At the same time, Iowans’ diets increasingly resembled the mass-consumer diets of Americans in other regions. Learn more about this fascinating chapter of history from Drake University professor Amahia Mallea, who will highlight artifacts from the State Historical Museum of Iowa to explain how changes in farming, technology and culture have influenced the Iowa dinner plate. This online presentation is part of the “Iowa History 101” series, which the State Historical Society of Iowa offers to commemorate Iowa’s 175th year of statehood. The event is free, but registration is required via Zoom: https://iowaculture.gov/history/iowa-history-101-series. #Iowa175
