Current Research
I am assessing the role played by 1960s-era social movements (such as the organic and natural foods movement, the New Left, the environmental movement, and the counterculture) in the rise of “New Wave” food co-ops in the 1960s and 1970s using a combination of quantitative and archival methods.
