MDOCS, event, lecture, Viviana Rangil, slide, flyer, Comida Latina


This flyer was designed to promote a lecture on October 15, 2014 with Viviana Rangil talking about her project, "Comida Latina."

Comida Latina is a database of images, texts, maps, and more related to food, women, culture, and identity. The work on this project started in 2010 with an exploration of the transnational forces that bring Latino foods to New York City, and the research has grown to become the site you are now exploring. Comida Latina is the beginning of a conversation about food and cultural identity, and as such, it is a visible way of showcasing the transformative power of food to bridge cultures.

Comida Latina is hosted by Skidmore College and has been developed by Skidmore Associate Professor of Spanish Viviana Rangil (Principal researcher, author, translator, and concept developer) and Skidmore Alum Angelo Gonzales (Summer research collaborator, technical support on data presentation and map technologies).
