Women writers, entrepreneurs, and artists are exploring the dramas of culinary history, tradition, and the future of food with new vigor and nuance. Words without Borders is delighted to present a panel that tackles the issue of women and food from multiple angles, bringing in the perspectives of writers, translators, and culinary and social entrepreneurs. Chitrita Banerji, Mariana Enriquez, Sonya Kharas, and Allison Markin Powell explore representation, power, documentation, migration, and more, in a discussion moderated by Rohan Kamicheril.
This event celebrates the publication of the May issue of Words without Borders, dedicated to international food writing.
