Bread Culture in Jordan (Film/TV/Video Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Bread Culture in Jordan
Writer: Jennie Ebeling
Director: Amanda Lane
Producer: Amanda Lane Productions
Abstract: Anthropologists have noted that traditional lifeways in the Middle East, especially those related to diet, are rapidly disappearing. Women were the primary bread bakers in traditional Middle Eastern societies until the emergence of male owned and operated commercial bakeries in the mid 20th century. Although their participation in bread baking is now limited, women are still strongly associated with the production of this essential foodstuff in Jordan. This documentary examines women's changing roles in bread production in contemporary Jordan through interviews with urban and rural Jordanians in the northern Jordan Valley, Amman, and the Petra area.

Engendering the Israelite Harvests (Article)
Title: Engendering the Israelite Harvests
Author: Jeannie Ebeling
Abstract: It is commonly believed that women were the preparers of food and drink in the Iron Age (ca. 1200–586 B.C.E.) Israelite household while men were primarily responsible for agricultural field activities. Various lines of evidence suggest, however, that this indoor female/outdoor male dichotomy as related to food production was not always the reality, especially during the crucial harvest seasons. The Hebrew Bible and other textual sources, iconography, and Middle Eastern ethnography suggest that women not only took part in the cereal grain, grape, and olive harvests, they were also valued for their participation in these seasonal field activities and the festivals that celebrated them. In this article, I shall examine the evidence for male and female participation in ancient Israelite harvests and challenge popular assumptions about how men and women contributed to the production of food and drink in ancient Israel.
