Section Three (10am) Eating History Chapter Selection

The time has come to pick your chapter for the Eating History project. Indicate your selection by leaving a comment on this post (you do not need to register with edublogs in order to comment, but you do need to put your name on it, so I know) indicating which chapter you want. First come, first served, and no duplicates, so you might want to have several possibilities in mind. After the selections are made, I will make copies of the chapters available, though you are always welcome to purchase the book from other sources.

If you are in the 2pm section (Section Four), then go to this post to make your selection.

    I’ve updated the list so that you can more easily see which chapters are still available. Don’t forget to check the comments below this, though, for later claims. If your name isn’t on the list above, it’s either because I’ve missed it (let me know!) or because someone else got to the chapter first and you need to pick another.
