Salon: On "Diversity" with Food52, presented by the Food Book Fair

  • Ace Hotel 20 West 29th Street New York, NY, 10001 United States (map)

From Food Book Fair:

Food Book Fair and Food52 co-host a roundtable discussion on how food media can rigorously and responsibly diversify its voices along racial, gender, age-based lines, and beyond.

What are publications doing to ensure another pho-gate doesn't happen? How are publications protecting people of color, women, queer, or other minority writers from dealing with harassment? How do people in positions of editorial power respond to demands that food is an apolitical space? What are strategies for providing meaningful, intentional coverage and content that reflect a broader swath of voices than mainstream media is used to — and how do allies and accomplices continue to push the boundaries of what is expected?

Featured speakers include:
Andrea Nguyen, cookbook author, teacher, consultant
Mayukh Sen, staff writer, Food52
Kenzi Wilbur, managing editor, Food52
Stephen A. Satterfield, writer, founder, Whetstone Magazine
Kimberly Chou Tsun An, co-director, Food Book Fair
