Critical Food Studies Series
Run at the Fales Library and Special Collection, the Critical Food Studies Series, is a regular lecture series that has been ongoing at NYU since 2010. Almost all of the lectures are freely downloadable or streamable. Some lectures (2010-2012) are downloadable from iTunes (found by clicking on the left button below) and others (2006-2016) are streamable from Fales' Food Video Archive (found by clicking on the right button below).
One online menu archive worth highlighting is that of the New York Public Library. Entitled "What's On the Menu?" the collection offers any researcher access to the largest menu collection in the world. Materials range as far back as 1840 and as recent as 2008. The project uses volunteers to transcribe the text in order to make the entire collection machine searchable. As of this date, the project has transcribed 17,545 menus.
