The #metoo Movement Comes to the Kitchen

The free, public events Alexander organized include a conversation with Severson and other food writers Thursday, Oct. 4, at the Durham Hotel and a Friday, Oct. 5, panel discussion on ‘Violence in the Kitchen’ at 11 a.m. at Duke’s Forum for Scholars and Publics, the co-sponsor of the event, in 011 Old Chemistry on West Campus.

An accomplished food writer who formerly worked at Saveur and Food & Wine magazines, Alexander is now a doctoral student in Duke’s cultural anthropology department. She spoke with Duke Today about the upcoming events, the larger #metoo movement, and how graduate training has changed how she sees food and its role in the world.
