The Kitchen Project

2020 - Ongoing

The Kitchen Project


The Kitchen Project is an oral history project recording stories of diasporic Asian mothers, daughters, and non-binary children on their relationship to food, care, and maternal figures. The project currently holds a multifaceted direction in envisioning oral history theories, Asian/American culture and history, archival research, and digital humanities.

Currently the project is supported by Columbia's Brown Insitute for Media Innovation and Chung's position as a Visiting Scholar at NYU Asian/Pacific/American Instittue.
