Kimchi Identities – Korean adoptees as Korean food ambassadors and the Politics of Belonging.

Beskrivelse
In the past decade a number of Korean adoptees have risen to prominence as cookbook authors,
chefs, and Korean food experts in Europe, Korea, and the United States. Based on qualitative
interviews with some of these adoptee Korean food ambassadors, this talk will present some
preliminary reflections on how these promoters of Korean food can be regarded as engaging in a (perhaps subtle) kind of Politics of Belonging in which their identity as Korean adoptees and approach to Korean cuisine signal complex desires of approaching and distancing themselves from other collectivities based on nation, ethnicity, indigeneity and migration. In doing so, this paper
argues that adoptees ambassadors engage in a political arena in which hierarchies of taste, class, race, and nation are embraced, contested, and resisted.
