Brooklyn Goes Global: When Local Culinary Culture Becomes a Global Phenomenon
Dr. Peter Naccarato will present work that he is co-authoring with Katie LeBesco for an edited volume titled Global Brooklyn. The book explores how a cultural and culinary aesthetic associated with Brooklyn has spread to cities around the world. The goal of the book is to understand how and why this is happening. It will include chapters that focus on various cities around the world, with Peter and Katie contributing the chapter on Brooklyn. Peter’s presentation will focus on the spread of hipster culture in various Brooklyn neighborhoods and its impact both locally and globally.
