“Justice, Served: Food Entrepreneurism and Culinary Innovation in Migrant Solidarity Formations”
Megan Carney is Assistant Professor of Anthropology and the Director of the Center for Regional Food Studies at UA. Her research interests include transnational and gendered migration, migrant health, food and food systems, and biopolitics. Her first book The Unending Hunger: Tracing Women and Food Insecurity Across Borders (University of California, 2015) is an ethnography of the lived experiences of migration and food insecurity among Mexican and Central American women in the United States. Her current book project, “Island of Hope: Migration and Solidarity in the Mediterranean” documents and analyzes local responses to the "migration crisis" in Sicily and in particular the solidarity initiatives and networks formed through alliances of citizens and noncitizens.
