    Critical Food Thoughts with Natalie Santizo

    Critical Food Thoughts with Natalie Santizo

    After a brief hiatus I'm back!
    This week's guest is Natalie Santizo who appropriately summarizes the amazing work she does in the bio below. 
    Natalie is a fourth year Ph.D. student in Chicana/o and Central American Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. Her research focuses on historic Latinx foodways- the production, consumption, and distribution of foods and foodstuffs- in the San Gabriel Valley during the early 20th century. Utilizing local archives, primary documents, oral history, and GIS mapping, Natalie focuses on Latinx farmer-entrepreneurs and laborers, piecing together the history of the Central San Gabriel Valley (Baldwin Park, El Monte, La Puente) from a Latinx perspective through a centralizing of foodways. Making local history accessible in the San Gabriel Valley is an important part of her work. You can follow her social media project @writewithnat on Instagram to learn more about SGV history and supporting small business.
