Synopsis:

Latin@s’ Presence in the Food Industry takes the holistic culinary approach of bringing together multidisciplinary criticism to explore the diverse, and not always readily apparent, ways that Latin@s relate to food and the food industry.

The networks Latin@s create, the types of identities they fashion through food, and their relationship to the US food industry are analyzed to understand Latin@s as active creators of food-based communities, as distinctive cultural representations, and as professionals. This vibrant new collection acknowledges issues of labor conditions, economic politics, and immigration laws—structural vulnerabilities that certainly cannot be ignored—and strives to understand more fully the active and conscious ways that Latina@s create spaces to maneuver global and local food systems.

About the Author: Meredith E. Abarca is associate professor of literature and food studies at the University of Texas at El Paso. She is the author of Voices in the Kitchen and coeditor of Rethinking Chicana/o Literature through Food.

Consuelo Carr Salas is a fourth-year doctoral student at the University of Texas at El Paso. Her research focuses on the rhetoric of visual food advertisements by bridging the areas of rhetoric and food studies.
