"Ethics of Eating Ethnic", by Dr. Eldon Soifer, Professor in Philosophy at the University of Regina

Having restaurants offering a number of ethnic foods is often viewed as a major advantage in a city, because many of us enjoy varying our diet and exploring the possibilities. However, some people have raised ethical questions about the practice of indulging in such enjoyments. Does partaking in foods from various parts of the world run a danger of participating in the problematic colonial histories of those places? If foods are adapted to suit the preferences of the dining public in a different place, does that do damage to the traditional heritage those foods come from? Is there a danger of "appropriation of foods", that might parallel the concerns about "cultural appropriation" or "appropriation of voice" that have been raised in other contexts? This talk will invite discussion about a number of these and related issues.
