NEWS AND EVENTS

OCTOBER 2018 Check out my interview, “Loncheras in New Orleans,” on the amazing food podcast, “Meant to be Eaten,” through Heritage Radio Network.

AUGUST 2018 My article, "Re-Regulating Loncheras, Food Trucks, and their Clientele: Navigating Bureaucracy and Enforcement in New Orleans," was published in Gastronomica: The Critical Journal of Food Studies. 

JULY 2018 Check out my latest post for the Food and Anthropology blog series, "Latinx Foodways in North America." My piece, "Honduran Cheese, Tamales and Beans" looks at transnationalism, food, immigration, and nostalgia. And, my review of Hispanic and Latino New Orleans was published on July 10 in The Americas: A Quarterly Review of Latin American History. 

JUNE 2018 I am excited to announce that I will be joining the wonderful faculty at University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) as a Visiting Lecturer in American Studies in August 2018! So excited to be a part of some amazing work happening at UMBC especially with community-engagement!

JUNE 2018 I had the opportunity to present at the Association for the Study of Food and Society Conference in Madison, WI on June 15th. My work, "Deregulating Yet Policing: Latinx Labor and Resistance in New Orleans Restaurant Jobs," was featured on the panel, "Minimum Wage, Migration, #MeToo, and Media: Restaurants at the Center of Social Change." I am excited to further develop the panel for the American Anthropological Association in November 2018 in San Jose, CA. Also, it was my first time in Madison and I was impressed. I really enjoyed the Friday Fish Fry tradition.
