Photographing Industrial Slaughter in Chicago's Packingtown


During this webinar Dr. Morgan highlighted photographs of Chicago's Packingtown from the turn of the twentieth century. Looking at how images were used both to promote and to critique the city's industrial-scale trade in animals and meat, the talk illuminated the role photographs played during a period of nascent globalization in American food industries.
