Inequality in America manifests in many ways, but perhaps nowhere more than in how we eat. In this talk, sociologist and ethnographer Priya Fielding-Singh draws on years of field research to bring us into the kitchens of dozens of families to explore how—and why—we eat the way we do. She will discuss her new book, How the Other Half Eats, which unpacks nutritional inequality in America through an in-depth examination of class, race and health.
Dr. Priya Fielding-Singh is Assistant Professor in the Department of Family and Consumer Studies at the University of Utah, where her research program is focused on identifying mechanisms underlying the reproduction of health inequities in America.
