At the Table: Sugarwork, Afro-Asian Art and Foodways

SEE EVENT DETAILS
In this virtual At the Table event, delve into the bittersweet history of sugar to unearth stories of Afro-Asian cultural exchange in the Caribbean. Through conversation and cooking, artist Andrea Chung and scholar Tao Leigh Goffe explore the crossroads of Black and Asian diaspora arts and cuisines, focusing on foodways that evolved out of colonial plantations -- from Cuba to Louisiana, Jamaica to Mauritius. Follow along as our guests demonstrate sugar artwork techniques and recipes for sweet plantains and tostones, while celebrating ingenuity and Afro-Asian solidarity. Recipes will be sent to registered participants with email confirmation.



Andrea Chung is an artist based in San Diego, California. Her work focuses primarily on island nations in the Indian Ocean and the Caribbean Sea within the context of colonial and postcolonial regimes.

Tao Leigh Goffe is assistant professor of literary theory and cultural history at Cornell University. She is also a writer and a DJ specializing in the narratives that emerge from histories of imperialism, migration, and globalization.
