Title: Eating Homes:A Critical Inquiry into the Representation of Arab American Identities in Contemporary Arab American Writings on Food
Author: Wathington, Priscilla
Abstract: Food writing is a significant trend in Contemporary Arab American Literature. This thesis explores the identity content of that body of literature, examining why food has captured the imagination of Arab American writers and how food helps to consolidate, order and narrate Arab American identity. The literature examined in this analysis includes poetry, short fiction and cookbook-memoirs.
