Dr. Anita Mannur: 'Kitchens in Crisis: Food, Enemies and Globalization'

2015-04-28 by News, Sports, and Art

Dr.Anita Mannur is an associate professor of English and Asian/Asian American Studies, and the director of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Miami University (Ohio).

Her talk will draw from research about the “unpalatable” within a culture of militaristic imperialism and the cultural spaces and narratives in which the figure of the “enemy combatant” is reimagined.

Some of the sites she examines are a Chicago-based performance art installation called “Enemy Kitchen,” and “Conflict Kitchen,” a take-out restaurant in Pittsburgh, PA.

Conflict Kitchen reformats the preexisting social relations of food and economic exchange to engage the general public in discussions about cultures, and people that they might know little about outside of the polarizing rhetoric of U.S. politics and the narrow lens of media headlines by showcasing cuisines only of the nations with which the U.S. is directly engaged in war.

This work suggests that the culinary, an emerging theoretical space within the purview of transnational American studies, offers important ways to think about empire, territory and gender.

This event was sponsored by the Department of Sociology/CAS, he Multicultural Center, the Office of Campus Diversity and Compliance, the Sociology cClub and the Department of Philosophy and the Ethics Center.

This podcast was recorded on March 19, 2015 in Library 307.
