The Cultural Healing Power of Food

As part of a short series of events that Emergence is hosting this spring to celebrate the release of Volume II of our print edition, we’re hosting a conversation about food, nourishment, and healing. Join Emergence contributors Lisa Lee Herrick, a second-generation Hmong American writer; Rowen White, a Seedkeeper from the Mohawk community of Akwesasne; and Kalyanee Mam, a Cambodian-American writer and filmmaker, as they discuss the cultural power of food, the memories encoded within seeds, histories of migration and displacement, and recipes passed down through generations.
