Food is one of the few things that are really and truly universal to all human cultures - everybody eats!  But food is also an area of incredible diversity, and a place where the boundaries between cultures shift, blend, and disappear.  Yongsan is a place where different food cultures interact, compete, and join to create something new, which has repercussions across the globe. With a background in anthropology and area studies, I’m interested in gathering data on food on the base itself, including food service, restaurants, and home cooking, and the effect of Yongsan’s presence on food and cooking in the wider Korean context. By pulling together our stories, memories, images, and recipes, I hope we can work towards documenting the past and the present through food and create a more in-depth understanding of the complex interactions Yongsan represents.
