Combining audio, video, and still imagery interviews and archival research, Dr. Meredith E. Abarca's digital humanities project El Paso Food Voices explores and documents the cultural and historical influences of foodways in the El Paso Borderland region.

A project of Undergraduate Research Fellow S. Vanessa Zuñiga and Faculty Fellow Jorge Gomez, the Literally Literary Podcast discusses culturally relevant books of all sorts and often features special guests from the Borderland community—including the authors themselves.

Dr. Meredith Abarca builds on her El Paso Food Voices project with the El Paso Food Voices Podcast, an ongoing food studies podcast program that explores the role of food in people's lives in the El Paso, Texas, and neighboring communities. The podcasts are gathered from home cooks, professional chefs, restaurant owners, community educators, and others from across the Borderland, and each episode spotlights specific guests and how food plays a particular role in their life
