Women's Stories of Food, Gender, and Land in Colorado's San Luis Valley during the Twentieth Century

My project contributes to understanding the United States’ diverse Latino population by focusing on Hispanic women’s stories of food and family in the Upper Rio Grande region in southern Colorado. It uses transcriptions of food-centered life history interviews gathered over eight summers from fifteen women to write a book grounded in the insights of ethnography, Latina feminism, and ecology. Women’s descriptions of foodways reveal their work, their family roles, their connections to the land, and their subjective reflections on their lives. Their stories point toward a sustainable future for the people and the land.
