Notes: “Feasting on Lowell”

Cathy Stanton, “Feasting on Lowell: Authority and Accommodation in Lowell’s New Cultural Economy,” in The Lowell Experiment: Public History in a Postindustrial City (University of Massachusetts Press, 2006), 185-228.


Stanton discusses the issues how various cultural identities, including ethnicity and outsider status, play into the issues surrounding a public history event in Lowell Mass. The event eventually became “polite, safe, predictable”.1
