May 22, 2020: Telling Our Stories through Food

Food can be a powerful medium of storytelling. The food that gives us comfort, the scent of a spice that sparks a memory, the recipe that reminds us of home–each of these can be a way of remembering and paying tribute to our traditions, practices, and experiences; a way of expressing ourselves; and a way to chronicle our past, present, and future.

Through a mini-food zine that each participant will create during the session and share, UIC Professor Anna Guevarra will engage us in a participatory conversation about the role of food in our lives and how our connection to food has changed during this quarantine period.

For this session, please bring one 8 ½ x 11” sheet of paper, a writing instrument, and YOUR food stories!

Facilitated by Dr. Anna Guevarra, associate professor and director of Global Asian Studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
