More Than a Meal: The Development of Japanese School Lunch

Alexis Agliano Sanborn, an independent Japanese and Food Studies researcher and project coordinator at the NYU U.S.-Asia Law institute, will discuss how Japanese school lunch is a vehicle that forges connections with community and society, ultimately contributing to students’ understanding of themselves and the world around them. Achieving reliable standards in food and curriculum quality, the local and national government, nutritionists, school administrators and staff have unintentionally created a growing soft power. This lecture will examine the history and enduring legacy of Japanese school lunch, and how simple meals have become a culinary representation of society.
