Description

In this paper, feminist food studies research was used to analyze the food-centered life histories of international residents of the United States. I argue that international residents of the United States have a greater ability to observe intersections of food with gender, race, and class since they are forced into the role of outsider within the United States‘ society. Through semi-structured interviews with international residents of the United States and feminist content analysis, new insight is shed on the United States‘ food system.
