Krystyn Moon, Professor of History and American Studies, recently co-authored two articles on central Cuba. “La Picadora: A Case Study in Cuban Agroecotourism,” which appeared last summer in the International Journal of Cuban Studies, looks at the impact of sustainable farming and tourism on a rural community that historically had not seen foreign visitors. “Food Access, Identity, and Taste in Two Rural Cuban Communities” interrogates Bourdieu’s notions of class identity by exploring food preferences among fishers and farmers in Sancti Spíritus Province. This essay was recently published in Gastronomica.

Moon’s research began through an educational exchange sponsored by COPLAC in 2015.
