    THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 6 P.M. STOCKED LECTURE: Dr. Tracey Deutsch "Making Change at the Grocery Store: The Politics of Provisioning in the 20th Century" Dr. Tracey Deutsch frames grocery stores as places where politics, gender, and economics intersect. She examined how grocery shopping worked in the past and why it changed. From small corner stores to supermarkets, Deutsch examined the complicated retail landscape from which Americans get their food. Her work emphasizes the gendered dimensions of food shopping, the transformative effects of large, streamlined grocery stores, and the limits of “mass” consumption. Deutsch is an associate professor of history at the University of Minnesota. Her first book, "Building a Housewife’s Paradise: Gender, Politics, and American Grocery Stores in the Twentieth Century" was named best book of 2010 by the Association for the Study of Food and Society. She has received fellowships from the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian and the Schlesinger Library at Harvard University. "Making Change" was co-sponsored by the Wichita State University Department of History. Deutsch's talk was held at 6 p.m. Thursday, February 28, 2013, in 210 McKnight Art Center West in the WSU School of Art and Design.
