WhenThursday, May 2, 2019, 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Description

Food Studies as an area of popular culture has increasingly been
gaining academic interest, and Mexican Food, as a area of Food
Studies, has recently garnered a great deal of attention throughout the
country. Rhetorically, scholars like Steven Alvarez and Gustavo
Arellano have shown Mexican food to be fraught with controversy,
especially as it concerns authenticity and appropriation. This workshop
will have participants arrive at strategies for conducting productive
rhetorical analyses of how Mexican food is situated in students’ lives as
well as in the popular imagination of the US.
