Session 6:The Pliable Palate: Taste as Invisible Markers of National and Cultural Spaces

       Following the concurrent sessions dedicated to foreign language papers, the sixth session of the conference continued this focus on multicultural discourses by exploring gastronomy's pervasive and enduring relationship with the immigrant experience. Our speakers in this section of the proceedings are concerned with issues of diaspora and how the act of cooking, whether it be traditional recipes from the homeland or glocal variations that arise from a clash of cultures, often serves to establish invisible markers that delineate cultural spaces and play a critical role in defining the identity of a particular diasporic community.

            No papers from this session are included in the proceedings.
