Dr. Hanna Garth – Food in Cuba: The Pursuit of a Decent Meal

April 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Join us for a conversation
with Black food justice scholar Dr. Hanna Garth about her
recent book, Food in Cuba:
The Pursuit of a Decent Meal
(Stanford University Press
2020). Dr. Garth is a sociocultural and medical anthropologist specializing in the anthropology of food.
Her work addresses issues of inequality and
structural violence, with regional interests
in Latin America and the Caribbean, and
among Black and Latinx communities in the
United States. Food in Cuba: The Pursuit
of a Decent Meal is based on 16 months of
ethnographic research in the city of Santiago de Cuba, the island’s second
largest city, and analyzes how families respond to changes in the food
system and struggle to maintain a
“decent” quality of life as the Cuban
socialist welfare state falters in the
post-Soviet era.
