DukeFSP: Violence in the Kitchen

Icon speaker
Kelly Alexander, Colman Andrews, Sandra Gutierrez & Kim Severson

In the kitchens and backrooms of restaurants around this country, sexual harassment and outright assault have long been tolerated, as we are learning in our #MeToo era. In fact, bullying chefs are sometimes even celebrated in popular culture, their abusive behavior indulged so that "culinary genius" might thrive. How did we get to this point, and what does the future of the food world hold for women and minority rights? The public is invited to join the Center for Documentary Studies' Lecturing Fellow Kelly Alexander for this special convening of her course, "Our Culinary Cultures," to discuss violence in the kitchen with invited guests Colman Andrews, Sandra Gutierrez, and Kim Severson.
