This month we’ll be learning about the Japafication of food, why mobiles have changed everything but the movies, and some LGBTQ etymology. With special guest host Dominique Morneau.
Japafied: Using History and Data to invent new and daricious foods
From sushi to tempura to ramen, Japan has a history of importing foods from other countries and passing them off as their own. By the end of this talk, you too will be able to take any dish and make it Japanese, using a Japafication method based on data, history, and three basic culinary prompts.
Growing up Canadian in a mixed Japanese-German household, Hana Etsuko Dethlefsen is perfectly poised to translate authentic Japanese cooking to an English-speaking audience. While living in Japan she did just that: her monthly column, Forking with Hana helped fellow ex-pats navigate the grocery aisles and keep them well fed. Author of Let’s Cooking and co-host of “One World Kitchen”, Hana now spends her days managing the Hackney museum and developing recipes for her new cookbook.
the invention of lesbianism
The LGBTQ community uses many words to describe itself, but where did these words come from and how did they come to be associated with us? This talk looks at the history of words such as lesbian and queer, tracing them all the way back to their first recorded uses.
Cerys Bradley is a PhD student, stand up comedian and amateur LGBT+ historian who researches Dark Net Markets by day and the history of the community by night, well, early evening and at the weekends
Mobile has changed everything but the movies
In a little under 25 years mobile phones and smart phones have transformed the word. Two thirds of the 7.5bn people on Planet Earth have them, with many countries having more phones than people. But you wouldn’t know it by watching the movies. In this talk Peter will show data and case studies of the transformation of the world, and Hollywood’s best efforts to ignore it.
Peter Gasston is an author, speaker and technologist at a digital agency in London. He’s been around long enough to remember life without mobile phones.
