We have something a little bit different for you in October, it's a workshop all about food!! Yes, we can tell our stories through food and you can find out more on 4 Oct. Please RSVP to vissainterpretation@gmail.com before 30 September. The event will be 1.5 - 2hrs long.

Dr Lucy Long is a folklorist, musician, mother, cook, and consumer of most things edible. She began studying food in 1980 in relation to work on Asian immigrant communities in the US and has continued looking at food from many perspectives. When she began teaching in the mid 1980s, the field of foodways was not recognized as a serious academic subject, so she explored and taught about food in the context of other disciplines– folklore, anthropology, popular culture, American culture studies, international studies, tourism, even ethnomusicology. Lucy also worked in museums and libraries doing exhibit research and design, educational programming, archiving, and interpretative presenting.

In 2007, Lucy founded the Center for Food and Culture which was established to bring together resources, organizations, and individuals involved in food research, study, appreciation, activism, production, and consumption in recognition that food connects us all. Lucy’s multidisciplinary background and her involvement in both academia and public sector work made her familiar with a wide range of approaches to understanding food.
