The Blog: On her blog, Nothing in the House, one thing brings together folklorist Emily Hilliard’s varied interests and studies: pie.
You’ve been producing your blog for eight years. How have you kept pie interesting for yourself?
As a freelance writer and folklorist, I tend to have a lot of short-term projects that pull me in different directions, so it’s been nice to have Nothing in the House as a continuous project with a very specific framework. But pie is also exciting to me because it provides a lens into so many other things—American culture, women’s work, feminism, regionality, seasonality, music, race, history, nostalgia, technique, folklore, etc. It is a pervasive and transcendent symbol. With that said, I don’t intend to make pie overly precious. At the end of the day it is just pie, and that sensibility is something I also really value.
