A Global History of Meat

A Global History of Meat

From large-scale cattle farming to water pollution, meat—more than any other food—has had an enormous impact on our environment. Historically, Americans have been among the most avid meat-eaters in the world, but long before that, meat was not even considered a key ingredient in most civilizations' diets. 

On Tuesday, May 21 at 7:00 p.m., Dr. Wilson Warren will appear at the North Berrien Historical Museum where he will present on how meat entered the daily diet and at what costs and benefits to society. Dr. Warren is a professor and chair of the History Department at Western Michigan University and has studied the meat industry for more than a decade. He recently published his book, Meat Makes People Powerful: A Global History of the Modern Era, which will be available to purchase at the program.

Collaborating with the North Berrien Historical Museum for this event is Water & Wheat Cafe who will have sliders of their vegan burger available to sample following the presentation.

No RSVP is required for this free program. Please contact peter@northberrienhistory.org with any questions or call the Museum at (269) 468-3330.
