A conversation with Krishnendu Ray.

Street Food—emphasis on street, that “dwelling place of the collective” and site of liveliness. Sociologist Krishnendu Ray returns to the podcast to explore the vitality of street food, its vendors, and why cities should protect these spaces from the homogenizing gaze of the Global North. The Chair of the Department of Nutrition and Food Studies at NYU-Steinhardt, Dr. Ray recently delivered the Distinguished Lecture at the annual event co-sponsored by SOAS University of London and Gastronomica.
