How does food restore the fragmented world of migrants and the displaced?

What similar processes are involved in challenging, maintaining or reinforcing divisions between groups coexisting in the same living place?

Food Identities at Home and on the Move examines how 'home' is negotiated around food in the current worldwide context of uncertainty, mobility and displacement.

Drawing on empirical approaches to heritage, identity and migration studies, the contributors analyse the relationship between food and the various understandings of home and dwelling.

With case studies on sushi around the world, food as heritage in the Afghan diaspora and Mexican foodways in Chicago, these chapters offer novel readings on the convergence of food and migration studies, the anthropology of space and place and the field of mobility by focusing on how entangled stories of food and home are put on display for constructing the present and imagining the future.
