Our guests today are Phariha Rahman and Theresa Alarcon. Both Phariha and Theresa have been Binghamton University students and involved in community engagement.
Phariha and Theresa talk about the memories of their grandmothers and the complications of stereotypes about immigrants and their descendants. They also discuss how the bonds and values constructed around food influence their sense of self and belonging.
