Introdução: consumindo memórias de casa na construçao do presente e imaginando o futuro


  • Monica Janowski Universidade de Londres



Agora é amplamente reconhecido na Antropologia de que os estudos das 'práticas alimentares' são importante para o entendimento de como as pessoas constroem a noção de quem são (1). As maneiras pelas quais os alimentos desempenham papel no contexto da migração não receberam tanta atenção até agora (embora veja Kershen, 2002). No entanto, existem bons motivos para sugerir que a compreensão dos processos de migração em si pode se beneficiar se examinados por meio das lentes da comida e da bebida; que indiscutivelmente desempenham um papel central na construção da identidade no contexto da migração tanto em nível individual como coletivo.
