Thesis Topic/Title
Food and Culture: Consuming Migrant Culture


Australian food is a blend of culinary traditions enriched by waves of successive migrant groups from different parts of the world. For migrants food traditions are a link to country of origin, home and family, and for ‘local communities, food may superficially become a means for cultural understanding and acceptance. This project explores the role of food in the resilience of migrant groups in regional Australia, both as a means of maintaining cultural practice and identity, and as an agent of acceptance and assimilation.
