A conversation with Eric C. Rath.

Many of us know about sushi, but have you heard of funazushi? Historian Eric C. Rath shares his tasting notes from trying Japan’s most ancient form of sushi. The lessons learned from his two-day tasting spree in Japan allow us to ponder about possibilities of sushi’s future, taking a view from the past, including current environmental sustainability concerns. Eric C. Rath is a Professor in the Department of History at the University of Kansas.
