Free NYU Event: “Eating Asian America” – Oct. 24 0

eating asian americaRSPV by Oct. 22 for a free “Eating Asian America” event on Oct. 24 at A/P/A Institute at NYU (19 West 4th Street in Manhattan).

A collection of burgeoning new scholarship on the study of foodways and culinary practices, Eating Asian America brings into dialogue the proliferation of Cambodian doughnut shops in Los Angeles with the politics of school lunch in Hawai‘i with the history of Kikkoman soy sauce with the rise of the Asian American hipster food trucks and more. In a refusal to yield to the superficial multiculturalism that naively celebrates difference through the pleasures of food and eating, the volume reveals the class, racial, ethnic, sexual, and gender inequalities that pervade and persist in the production, distribution, and consumption of Asian American cuisine.

Editors Robert Ji-Sing Ku, Martin F. Manalansan IV, and Anita Mannur and contributors Nina F. Ichikawa, Heidi Kim, and Zohra Saed discuss Eating Asian America with Krishnendu Ray (Chair of the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies & Public Health, NYU Steinhardt) alongside some of the most prominent figures in Asian American food.
