The dynamics of consumer society are complex. The hierarchy of food procurement is built into a capitalist structural system, revealing how class affects the ways in which we shop (see minutes 3:52-5:22 and more on gender and consumption at 7:52).
Thinking about this hierarchy of consumption, those who belong to the lowest paid workers in the food chain are more likely to shop at stores that contribute to the greater structural problem. (Refer to the Food Chain Alliance report personal stories from pages 30, 31 and 33 on the first page of this learning path---where do you believe these workers can afford to shop?
Tracey Deutsch is a professor of History at the University of Minnesota where she studies the history of capitalism, the politics of consumer society, food and reproductive labor, and the history of women and gender. Recent publications include “Untangling Alliances; Social Tensions at Neighborhood Grocery Stores and the Rise of Chains,” in Food Nations (2002), Building a Housewife’s Paradise: Gender, Politic and American Grocery Stores in the Twentieth Century (2010) and “Memories of Mothers in the Kitchen: Local Foods, History, and Women’s Work,” Radical History Review (April, 2011). In the spring of 2012 she was a residential faculty fellow at the IAS, working on “The Julia Child Project.” She talks about her project and position as a historian in the food system.
