Radical Fermentation Dialogue Series: Dr. Jessica Bissett Perea (Assistant Professor of Native American Studies at UC Davis) in dialogue with Stephanie Maroney
This series brings together coordinators of the DHI transcollege research cluster Radical and Relational Approaches to Fermentation and Food Sovereignty for interdisciplinary dialogue about fermentation science, Indigenous food sovereignty, performance, feminist science studies, and radical/relational approaches to fermentation. We invite participants with interests in these topics from across campus to join the series and build a research community. Each event will feature a presentation of one scholar’s work, followed by a dialogue led by another research cluster member and questions from event participants.
