As a folklorist, I am interested in the role of food and identity. I am particularly interested in how different cultures and communities use food to create identities and norms. I will contribute to the mission of the FIC by sharing my expertise regarding ethnicity and food. As new ethnic groups emerge in Columbus, it is important to be aware of their food practices. I can contribute to this knowledge.
