In November we were treated to Maggi Galaxy, a presentation by Stephan Palmié, Professor of Anthropology at University of Chicago and Antoni Miralda, Barcelona-based artist and founder of FoodCultura. They are collaborating on a Chicago-focused project supported by a Gray Center Mellon Collaborative Fellowship, exploring the intersection between food, art, and other forms of cultural exchange. This project included “Foodcultura: The Art and Anthropology of Cuisine,” a team-taught course using Chicago’s diverse and complex alimentary and gustatory worlds for the students’ extensive fieldwork.

A Taste of FoodCultura will be a snapshot of the students’ final presentations from this course:

Sinhá / home dining (January 25)
Sugar (January 25)

Foodchains / South Shore vs Albany Park (February 15)
Live Poultry (February 15)
