Mini Lecture 3 Outline
Part 1: Who was AJ Liebling?

Part 3: Course Themes
Weekly Checklist
Part 2: While You're Reading
How do the ideas of food and art come together in Liebling's text?
Unlike many writers we'll read, Leibling spends very little time talking about the public/exterior spaces of Paris (like parks, monuments, city streets). How does this shape or change Liebling's memoir? What is the effect of this different focus?
When Liebling describes food and cuisine, is he actually just talking about these things or is there some deeper meaning behind these descriptions?
How is Liebling's text similar to but also different from Wharton's?
Part 3: Course Themes
The role of the physical city in shaping urban experience; Leibling limits his memoir to discussions of the semi-public spaces of the cafe.
Illuminates important cultural rituals embedded in the seemingly mundane practices of cooking, dining, and eating; uses food to illustrate cultural difference.
