PRESENTATION: Eating Far from Home: Migrant Foodways in Vermont

with Pablo Bose, Assistant Professor, UVM Department of Geography; and Teresa Mares, Assistant Professor, UVM Department of Anthropology

Pablo Bose and Teresa Mares speak about their research on food and migration in Vermont, particularly their involvement with two community projects-one that works with refugees on urban farming, and another that works with migrant workers on kitchen gardening.
