I might be in Malta over parts of the summer, but I thought about you when I saw the off the beaten track even because one of their topics is food ... so of course you immediately came to mind.

But I'd like to meet them - I didn't know there were 'expedition, research in applied anthropology' based in Malta... so what with my work with Friends of the Earth, the Engaging Anthropology in Practice project and Design Anth stuff I've been doing here I'd love to know more about what these guys do when they're in Gozo.

Oh and I saw you guys discussing identity below - are you familiar with the 2000 article by Brubaker and Cooper "beyond identity"... I think that if you are going engage with such a slippery concept such as 'identity' this article really helps to decide how you want to use identity and how you don't want to use it as a concept...

what are you doing anyway Elise... now that PhD is finit!

I do not suppose you read French, do you?
if not I published an article in English in "anthropological notebook journal" entitled: "when traditions become trendy", you can google it and download it. It explains mainly how the Maltese elite is promoting an invention of the food tradition...
Regarding memory and food, you must have read David sutton and his "rememberance of repast" ?
Theoratically, I agree with you, there has been so many connexions between identity and memory but in reality each context is different. I am a true believer in fieldwork. I think the fieldwork will give you the keys... theory is a help, it comes after. the most important is to go and listen to what people have to say.

Maybe you'll come over next summer, during Sam's expeditions? I'd like to meet you.
