We need to talk about : New Dialogues through FoodZines

NB Ticket sales close 23rd May 3pm BST

We look forward to delving into the thriving realm of independent food magazines in print. These publications are spearheaded by visionary leaders who understand the power of compelling storytelling and are dedicated to delivering their content via traditional printed magazines, available for purchase on newsstands. In order to be sustainable, such endeavours demand a comprehensive understanding of food culture, coupled with the ability to produce a magazine that resonates with audiences.

These foodzines are  platforms for the exploration of diverse culinary landscapes. They range widely: reflecting on food history, sketching visions of the future of food, amplifying the voices of marginalized communities, and celebrating diaspora cuisines. Our panel will bring together three creators of independent food magazines, each offering unique perspectives.

Caroline Hwang is a food stylist and founder of Synonym Magazine.
She combines her love of food and storytelling in nearly everything she does, which is in part how Synonym Magazine came to be.
Whether working in-studio or out of a food trailer on the streets of Mexico City, Caroline is always excited to see where her next project will take her. To combat excessive waste in the industry, Caroline distributes the extra food on set to food banks and the unhoused through her Waste Not initiative. She is excited to share stories of the immigrant diaspora through the magazine.

Emelyn Rude is the publisher and editor of Eaten, an independent print magazine focused on food history. She is also currently a researcher at Sciences Po-Paris, where she studies the impact of environmental change on the development of the food system in the United States.

LinYee Yuan is the founder and editor of MOLD (thisismold.com), a critically-acclaimed print and online magazine about designing the future of food. In 2022, she launched Field Meridians, an artist collective committed to creating tools for ecological resilience through social practice. Through site-specific exhibition, publishing, and broadcast, Field Meridians engages the Crown Heights community to lay the foundations for food sovereignty in the heart of Brooklyn. She is currently an adjunct professor at Parsons, The New School and was previously editorial director for Emerson Collective, entrepreneur in residence for QZ.com and an editor for Core77, T: The New York Times Style Magazine and Theme magazine.

This session is hosted by Priya Mani
