Not sure if blogs are still relevant and enjoyed in 2019 given how fast technology and media has been moving in recent years.
HOWEVER, I have felt increasingly the urge to expand AnthroDish in certain ways, and one of them is by setting some more time aside to reflect on my own ideas around food. I adore the guests that I have on, but I always try and shape conversations around their perceptions, experiences, and knowledge. And while I certainly align with many of their ideas, I’m admittedly a bit nervous to put my own thoughts out there on the line. So writing felt the most natural way for me to start this, as writing was always my first love (before anthropology, even - shocker!).
A personal goal of mine this year was to start writing more in different news outlets. I’ve started working with the amazing editors over at The Conversation Canada and aim to keep writing science communication pieces where I can! So if you have any thoughts about where I could, drop me a line and let me know.
This particular space I’ll be using to share my reflections and opinions about food, anthropology, and sometimes even motherhood! Exploring what’s making the news and digging into the anthropology of it all.
So stay tuned, I hope you enjoy what’s about to come for this space!
