Food voice narratives are one way of exploring and communicating connections between
individual and collective histories. Stories about, or told through, food can create a new
vocabulary for describing social relations. Food narratives also offer opportunities to use the
authority of individual subjectivities to reframe or re-tell history.
Gastropolis offers several examples of food voice narratives. Use these examples as models for
crafting your own narrative in which you use food to reflect on identity and your connection to
the history of (im)migration. Narratives should be 2-3 pages long.
