To celebrate the launch of his new book, Gastronativism: Food, Identity, Politics, author and food scholar Fabio Parasecoli joins Marion Nestle for a conversation about the many ways in which food becomes the object of and the motivation for politics from the local to the global, determining winners and losers in high stakes conflicts. Moderated by Krishnendu Ray.

A wine reception and book signing will follow the talk; books available for purchase.
