MEET THE HISTORIAN

Dr. Sevin Gallo teaches world history through the lens of food at NorthWest Arkansas Community College. Her Honors classes meet at Brightwater: A Center for the Study of Food and at local restaurants. In these non-traditional environments, students examine different historical processes while considering how food systems and food culture shape the human experience.
Sevin has a Ph.D. in Modern Middle East and Latin American comparative world history from the University of Akron, and an MA and BA in European History from Kent State University.  Her research focuses on the ways nationalism, popular culture, food-ways, and modern state-formation intersect. In addition to teaching world history, Sevin works as the Global Studies degree coordinator at NWACC, and she leads study abroad programs to Greece, Spain and Morocco, and Turkey. She's lived in Istanbul and loves traveling so much that she started a boutique group travel company in 2019. She loves to coordinate travel experiences that foreground authentic local cuisine within each destination's significant historical and cultural context. Her current group travel programs include Morocco, Argentina, Greece, Turkey, France, Spain, and Tanzania (including the famous spice island of Zanzibar).
