Recipes and Reciprocity Winnipeg Launch
Join editor Hannah Tait Neufeld and contributing author Monica Cyr for the Winnipeg launch of Recipes and Reciprocity!
At this afternoon book talk, Hannah and Monica will discuss nutritional colonialism, the importance of preserving knowledge around Indigenous foodways, and their own personal search for cultural food knowledge. Light refreshments provided by Feast Café Bistro will be available following the presentation. This event is presented in partnership with UMIH.
We hope to see you there!
Recipes and Reciprocity: Building Relationships in Research considers the ways that food and research intersect for researchers, participants, and communities demonstrating how everyday acts around food preparation, consumption, and sharing can enable unexpected approaches to reciprocal research and fuel relationships across cultures, generations, spaces, and places.
