Hosted virtually by VIU and the journal Gender & History the Symposium will examine how histories of food and sovereignty have intersected with gender over time. Keynote speaker Ozoz Sokoh will highlight how food is more than nourishment for the body but also an important aspect of people’s history and heritage. Sokoh's keynote webinar is the only portion of the symposium open to the public. Sokoh is a food explorer, culinary anthropologist and food historian from Nigeria. A food blogger since 2009, she describes herself as “passionate about food in its entirety – cooking, eating, dreaming, researching, writing, photographing and styling it, especially on her blogKitchen Butterfly.”
