Talking About Race Matters – Join the Conversation with Lavada Nahon

September 14, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Join us for the first presentation in our Talking About Race Matters – Join the Conversation Lecture Series! The theme for this series is “Decolonizing Food.” Culinary Historian Lavada Nahon will kick off the series with her presentation “The Impact of the Age of Exploration on What We Eat.”

For many the idea of decolonizing our lives, includes ‘eating like our ancestors’ but what if you have no idea what your ancestors ate? How far back does one look for those ‘ancestors’? When and how did the world’s foods get so mixed up? In this short program, culinary historian Lavada Nahon will look at the global food and eating exchanges of the 17th and 18th century and their lingering impact on what we eat today.

En este breve programa, la historiadora culinaria Lavada Nahon analiza los intercambios alimentarios mundiales de los siglos XVII y XVIII y su impacto en lo que comemos hoy.
