Beyond my scholarly work, I enjoy writing pieces for broader audiences (although sociologists are welcome to read them too!).
Most recently, I wrote an article for the Los Angeles Times explaining how living in poverty doesn’t just impact people’s access to healthy food, but something even more fundamental: the meaning of food itself.
