During her Allington Fellowship at the Science History Institute, Anastasia Day was a history doctoral candidate and Hagley Scholar in capitalism, technology, and culture at the University of Delaware. She received her BA in philosophy from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin, and completed her MA in history with a certificate in museum studies at the University of Delaware. She identifies as a historian of environment, technology, business, and society—themes that collide uniquely in food and especially in food gardens. Her dissertation is entitled “Productive Plots: Nature, Nation, and Industry in the Victory Gardens of the U.S. World War II Home Front.” In her spare time she gardens, cooks, runs, and reads detective fiction.
