OGDEN — “Mormon Ethics of Eating” is the topic of Kate Holbrook’s presentation Tuesday, Mar. 24, from 12 p.m. - 1 p.m., as part of Weber State University’s Convocations. This event is in the Shepherd Union Wildcat Theater and is free and open to the public.
Holbrook, a specialist in women’s history at the LDS Church History Department, will explore how faith, culture and food are connected in Utah and the Mountain West, according to a news release. Her current research interests have led her to study how religious beliefs and affiliations impact the way people eat, speak and behave.
Holbrook stated in the release that Mormon food culture has permeated far beyond family dinners in Utah and impacts restaurants and social gatherings.
Holbrook’s visit is sponsored by WSU’s Student Association as part of Convocations, and the Center for Community Engaged Learning as part of WSU’s Food Matters Engaged Learning Series. For more information on Holbrook, visit weber.edu/StudentInvolvement/convocations.html.
