Rafia Zafar Reading & Signing for “Recipes for Respect”

Food studies, once trendy, has settled into the public arena. In the academy, scholarship on food and literary culture constitutes a growing river within literary and cultural studies, but writing on African American food and dining remains a tributary. Recipes for Respect: African American Meals and Meaning bridges this gap, illuminating the role of foodways in African American culture as well as the contributions of Black cooks and chefs to what has been considered the mainstream.

Rafia Zafar is Professor of English, African and African American Studies, and American Culture Studies at Washington University in St. Louis. Professor Zafar is the author or editor of five books, including the two volume Harlem Renaissance Novels (Library of America, 2011) and We Wear the Mask: African Americans Write American Literature, 1760-1870 (Columbia UP, 1997)

Copies of Rafia Zafar’s books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Subterranean Books.
