Abstract EN

This research is an attempt to emphasize the connection between food, identity and culture in Arab-American women's writings.

Many of the poems and short stories scattered throughout this research describe the ways in which the tastes and thoughts of certain foods arouse nostalgic feelings of cultural roots and thus approve the imminent usefulness and benefits of food as a means of defining the Arab identity and culture in the American melting pot.
