  • West Africa in Mexican Rice Cultivation and Gastronomy

    2,378 views 2 years ago

The reconstruction of a plausible history of the successful transplantation of rice to Mexico in the first half of the sixteenth century provides agency to Senegalese-Gambian women and men in the building of Mexican national crops, gastronomy and identity.
