Title: Spices: A Change Agent in World History


Speaker: Fred Czarra

Description: Spices were exchanged throughout the ancient world traveling west from East and South Asia to Africa. The Arab trading networks brought spices across the deserts and waterways of the Middle-East to Rome.  But it was after the 16th Century that a truly global transformation took place connecting the cultures and economies of the  eastern and western worlds and bringing with it the beginning of globalization.  Since that time the use of spices has evolved from limited use in the west to a true "globalization" of spices in the cuisines of cultures all over the globe. Leading the way has been the chili pepper, one of the three spices that did not originate in tropical  South and East Asia.


Speaker's bio:  Fred Czarra is an international education consultant and Adjunct Professor of World Geography and World History at St. Mary's College of Maryland. He is the author or co-author of seven books, including Spices: A Global History.
