29th Social Research conference, "Food and Immigrant Life: The Role of Food in Forced Migration, Migrant Labor, and Recreating Home"
The New School in New York City

The conference will examine the complex relationships between food and migration. Food scarcity is not only at the root of much human displacement and migration—the food industry also offers immigrants an entry point into the U.S. economic system while simultaneously confining migrants to low wages and poor, if not unsafe, work conditions. At the same time, food allows immigrants to maintain their cultural identity. The conference places issues of immigration and food service work in the context of a broader social justice agenda and explores the cultural role food plays in expressing cultural heritage.

   
Date: April 18-19, 2013
Time: 2:15 PM-9:00 AM
Fees: $45 for the full conference; $15 for individual sessions; FREE for students
