This course aims to explore, critically analyze, and comprehend the history of migration and the recent development of migrant economies in Berlin with a particular focus on migrant food entrepreneurship. About 30% of the total population in Berlin has migration backgrounds. Many of them are part of migrant economies in this multicultural city, mainly in ethnic food sectors. Food as an indispensable nourishment resource and a complex social compound, migrant food entrepreneurship reveals various facets of global and local development. For instance, migrant food entrepreneurs reflect multilayered connections of the local business to the origin of the represented culture. Thus, it is essential to consider in what ways ethnic cuisine is integrated into our ordinary life. Who are the migrant food entrepreneurs in Berlin? How do they reproduce their national and international identity in their culinary business? How does it interact with the city's socioeconomic environment? In this course, participants will work with the examples from Berlin's multicultural culinary sceneries to answer these questions. The first half of the course deals with theoretical concepts. In the second half, participants will develop an individual or group project about Berlin's food entrepreneurs. Through interactive and collaborative exercises, participants will develop genuine perspectives in living together in a multicultural city.
