  • Doctoral Thesis

    Ellen Barth's doctoral research examines women’s involvement in the production of American community cookbooks in the second half of the 20th century. Focusing particularly on the books’ material aspects and the mechanisms of their creation, this project aims to shed light on the way women have participated in publishing outside of mainstream channels, using their own methods and print culture practices.
