In this lecture, "Contemporary Migrant Kitchens: Empty-Handed Not Empty-Headed," Dr. Khan discusses her project "Migrant Kitchens," a series of short films from 2015-2017 on migrants in Queens, NY. An on-going project, Dr. Khan created the work to highlight the obstacles hard working citizens face, daily, in the most diverse community in the world. Dr. Khan also shares how she created the project, the multiple media she uses to story tell, and the larger impact the media morsels have on select Queens residents and their communities at large.

Dr. Khan’s creations are informed by training in Middle Eastern history (BA), public health and nutrition (MPH, MS) and traditional ecological knowledge systems/plant sciences in South Asia and China (PhD). A two-time Fulbright scholar, Khan has been awarded artist residencies, grants, and fellowships.
