Elaine Swan and Rick Flowers, professors of communication studies and adult education, respectively, at the University of Technology in Sydney, shared their research-in-progress on ethnic food tours in Sydney's multicultural Bankstown neighborhood.

The seminar was sponsored by ASU's School of Social Transformation, which offers North America's first graduate degree in social and cultural pedagogy – the study of teaching and learning throughout the lifespan and across contexts.
