    FRIAS research project
    “Ethnic restaurants in West Germany”
    Combining research on migration to West Germany and on post-war consumerism, I am particularly interested in transnational food migration and its impact on (re-)defining ethnic identities. My attempt to empirically test some of the theoretical claims of transnational and transcultural research is guided by the historical interest in the ways cultural differences have been re-articulated in Germany after 1945. What does the consumption of “foreign” food mean in the context of reconfiguring German society and its relation to “the other” after the experiences of National Socialism and the Second World War? Although in this respect the German case might be specific, the spread of ethnic food in the FRG is part of an international trend in Western consumer societies. Therefore, the ethnic restaurant in Germany – in itself a transnational place – will be contextualized by comparisons with ethnic restaurants in other Western countries, especially the U.S. and the U.K., but also with the GDR, and thus with different cultures of consumption.
