In line with his current research, Dr. Steven Alvarez’s talk will focus on Mexican migration in New York City through the prism of food, specifically “taco literacy.” The research project examines how foodways narratives demonstrate a literacy of care for Mexican communities across the five boroughs, through stories of bilingual learning, literacy practices, and community resiliency.
Steven Alvarez is associate professor of English at St. John's University in Queens. He is the author of Brokering Tareas: Mexican Immigrant Families Translanguaging Homework Literacies and Communities Literacies en Confianza: Learning from Bilingual After-School Programs, both published in 2017.
