Foodways at the Intersections of Gender, Race, and Class at Hollywood Plantation

Author(s): Jodi Barnes

Year: 2018

Summary

Archaeological research uncovered the remains of an ell kitchen, a smokehouse, and a cellar at Hollywood Plantation in southeast Arkansas. These spaces provide intimate information about foodways or the shared ways that people thought about, procured, distributed, preserved, and consumed foods in the 19th and 20th century. In this paper, I will discuss the ways the archaeology of foodways is used as a tool for public engagement and a lens into the intersectionality of gender, race, class at a rural plantation.
