American Metabolism: From Food as Fuel to Nutrition as Regulation

ISG faculty Hannah Landecker presents a talk on her pre-circulated paper, “American Metabolism: From Food as Fuel to Nutrition as Regulation”.

Hannah Landecker uses the tools of history and social science to study contemporary developments in the life sciences, and their historical taproots in the twentieth century.  She has taught and researched in the fields of history of science, anthropology and sociology.  At UCLA she is cross-appointed between the Institute for Society and Genetics, and the Sociology Department.  She is currently working on a book called “American Metabolism,” which looks at transformations to the metabolic sciences wrought by the rise of epigenetics, microbiomics, cell signaling and hormone biology.
