Culture Change, Image and Adaptation: A film series at Penn Museum

Chinese Restaurants

CHinese Restaurants

While the Chinese restaurant is ubiquitous in nearly every corner of the globe, the nature of the food changes according to local taste, while the restaurant owners change by adapting to local cultural norms. Dr. Jane Kauer, Penn Anthropology Department, an expert on food and culture, and Dr. Emily Hannum, Penn Sociology, present an episode of this celebrated 2008 series by Canadian writer, director and producer Cheuk Kwan.

This program is made possible through the generous support of Anthropology, African Studies Center, Cinema Studies, East Asian Studies, Middle East Studies, South Asian Studies, Greenfield Intercultural Center, and Penn Humanities Forum at the University of Pennsylvania.
