Cooking Their Culture: The Relationship Between Cookbooks and the Societal Roles of the Women Who Owned Them in the 1940s and 1950s

 
9783639201390: Cooking Their Culture: The Relationship Between Cookbooks and the Societal Roles of the Women Who Owned Them in the 1940s and 1950s

The gender roles of American women have been rewritten throughout the course of our nation's history. Women have learned how to be women from the messages sent by the societies they lived in. These messages have come from any number of places, including cookbooks. By choosing two different eras that have contrasting roles for women: World War II and the subsequent period of suburban growth, one can clearly see the disparate missives. A broad survey of cookbooks that were published between 1942 and 1960, nationally distributed, and not regionally or ethnically focused was conducted for this research. From this survey, two books from each era that best represented these common characteristics have been examined as a close reading of each text not as literature, but as an artifact of material culture. Nora Cope makes a case that women of America?s past used cookbooks as life manuals and not just as collections of recipes.
