Presented by Maribel Alvarez
Every loop in our social fabric involves food, and food is one of our most enduring and persuasive symbolic code systems. In this talk, Dr. Alvarez provides an anthropologist’s perspective on food by exploring how we define ourselves—and others—through our daily food habits, traditions, and practices.
The University of Arizona’s College of Social and Behavioral Sciences studies people and their connections with each other, their pasts, and the world around them to better understand the complexity that shapes their daily lives. This year, the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences explores the connection between food and health, culture, and environment.

If you can’t get to downtown Tucson for this fascinating lecture series on one of the most important aspects of our daily lives, come see it here in Oro Valley! The National Parks Store offers live streaming broadcasts of these lectures at 6:30PM Wednesdays on the large screen in our Kiva Gallery, with seating for up to 60 people. Light refreshments and coffee are provided. For reservations please call 622-6014 during business hours.
