The Foodways and Humanities Project

A multi-year collaboration between humanities and culinary arts faculty and students exploring Latino history and culture through foodways.

The Food and Humanities Project is a multi-campus learning community which links humanities and culinary arts courses at the City University of New York to develop an understanding of Latin American history and culture. Students in history courses are guided by an expert in the field to conduct primary research in Latin American food history. The recipes they select as reflective of important moments in the region’s development will be created in the kitchens of a culinary arts program. This process will be filmed and the resulting videos first shown to the participating history students during the course of the project and then made public as teaching resources through the project’s permanent web site.
