Radical Fermentation Dialogue Series: Dr. Maria Marco (Professor of Food Science and Technology at UC Davis) in dialogue with Aviaja Lyberth Hauptmann
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.

Professor Maria Marco (https://www.marcolab.net/) is a microbiologist with expertise in fermented foods, probiotics, and the human microbiome. Dr. Marco’s research is investigating the microorganisms and processes responsible for making fermented foods and elucidating how foods and probiotic bacteria impact human health. Dr. Marco is leading international efforts to increase shared knowledge on fermented foods, including recognition of the central roles these foods have in traditional diets. In fall 2021 she will co-teach “Radical Storywork: Performing Food Sovereignty through Inuit Fermentation Culture” with Professor Jessica Perea, which advances Inuit knowledges and performing arts processes as a means to unsettle and expand dominant modes of knowledge production in food science research.
