- Jean Duruz’s work focuses on issues of cosmopolitan citizenship and multiculturalism in Australia, as well as in a number of other societies, including those of Singapore, Malaysia, Britain, the United States and Mexico. It addresses questions of reciprocal human relationships and cultural exchanges in cosmopolitan societies - ways that these relationships and exchanges can enhance social sustainability. A major strand of her work uses food as a window for analysing relations of class, gender, religion and ethnicity and for understanding issues of inclusion, integration and citizenship in a changing society. Her work has implications for issues of social justice and inclusion, cultural integration, urban and regional planning, tourism and the social and cultural role of small business.

Eating 'Asia': Asian Kitchens and Identities in Negotiation
|This research examines everyday intercultural interactions through food as ways of problematising ‘Asian’ and ‘Australian’ identity negotiations. Focusing on foodscapes in Adelaide and Singapore and on differently-positioned users, the research is documenting a range of material (photographs, sound recordings, ethnographic observations, interview narratives) for each site. Through analysis of this material, the project is engaging with recent debates on Australian multiculturalism as ‘ethnic enrichment’, and on ‘eating Asian’ as forms of consumer cannibalism. Finally, the project speculates on more complex understandings of ‘Asian’ and ‘Australian’ within a milieu of global cosmopolitanism and glocalised practices of place.|
