Food and Migration

Fall 2022

Taught By: Shayne Figueroa

Section: A

CRN: 14114

Credits: 3

In the contemporary world, food sparks debates on power structures, race, ethnicity, and multiculturalism that acquire particular relevance in places where people from around the world live together and interact. In this course, we examine food in relation to migration in New York City and at the national and international levels. We look at how food can become an instrument of communication and cultural exchange but also of exclusion and xenophobia. Through lectures, interviews, and fieldwork in the city, we use food as a starting point for an analysis of the dynamics of adaptation, appropriation, and diaspora in a global framework. Although the focus is on contemporary society, we also explore historical aspects of the subject.
