Join us Wednesday April 21 from 4-5 pm CT for a conversation with Black food justice scholar Dr. Hanna Garth about her recent book, Food in Cuba: The Pursuit of a Decent Meal (Stanford University Press 2020). Dr. Garth is a sociocultural and medical anthropologist specializing in the anthropology of food. Her work addresses issues of inequality and structural violence, with regional interests in Latin America and the Caribbean, and among Black and Latinx communities in the United States. Food in Cuba: The Pursuit of a Decent Meal is based on 16 months of ethnographic research in the city of Santiago de Cuba, the island's second largest city, and analyzes how families respond to changes in the food system and struggle to maintain a "decent" quality of life as the Cuban socialist welfare state falters in the post-Soviet era.
FREE copies of her book are available for a limited number of attendees.
This event is sponsored by the NIU Anthropology Department, the Center for Latino and Latin American Studies (CLLAS), the Institute for the Study of the Environment, Sustainability, & Energy/Environmental Studies (ESE), and the Center for the Study of Women, Gender and Sexuality (WGS)
