NORD Lecture: Baking Everyday: Swedish-American Immigrant Women and Their Cookbooks

Please join us, via Zoom, as Svea Larson discusses handwritten Swedish-American recipe collections from 1900-1940 – mostly for baked goods – the women who wrote them, and the kitchens in which they were made!

Svea Larson is a PhD Candidate in Scandinavian Studies and is currently conducting research in Sweden. Her dissertation focuses on Swedish-American migrant women who traveled between Sweden and the United States and labored as domestic workers in the early twentieth century.
