This year the Shasha Seminar on Human Concerns is entitled “Food: Power and Identity.” Everyone is welcome to go to the keynote speaker on Friday, April 4, but if you want to go to any of the cooler lectures, you are supposed to register now and you need to shell out $250. Which is really rather unfortunate, since they have cool events ranging from a lecture on “Subversive Food” to a wine-tasting, and since it is being run by the man himself (no, sorry, not Delmar): John Finn, estranged grad. of the the French Culinary Institute who decided to devote himself to the old and noble art of constitutional law. The true John Finn will no doubt make an appearance at this seminar on his first love.
WHEN: April 4-6, all day
WHERE: Wesleyan U.
COST: a mere $250
WHAT: Culinary notables discuss the goofy and fascinating sides of food. Meals will be provided.
