The act of eating defines and redefines borders. What constitutes “American” in our cuisine has always depended on a liberal crossing of borders, from “the line in the sand” that separates Mexico and the United States, to the grassland boundary with Canada, to the imagined divide in our collective minds between “our” food and “their” food. Immigrant workers have introduced new cuisines and ways of cooking that force the nation to question the boundaries between “us” and “them.” The stories told in Food Across Borders highlight the contiguity between the intimate decisions we make as individuals concerning what we eat and the social and geopolitical processes we enact to secure nourishment, territory, and belonging.

Chop Suey, USA

The Story of Chinese Food in America

American diners began to flock to Chinese restaurants more than a century ago, making Chinese food the first mass-consumed cuisine in the United States. By 1980, it had become the country's most popular ethnic cuisine. Chop Suey, USA offers the first comprehensive interpretation of the rise of Chinese food, revealing the forces that made it ubiquitous in the American gastronomic landscape and turned the country into an empire of consumption. Engineered by a politically disenfranchised, numerically small, and economically exploited group, Chinese food's tour de America is an epic story of global cultural encounter. It reflects not only changes in taste but also a growing appetite for a more leisurely lifestyle. Americans fell in love with Chinese food not because of its gastronomic excellence but because of its affordability and convenience, which is why they preferred the quick and simple dishes of China while shunning its haute cuisine. Epitomized by chop suey, American Chinese food was a forerunner of McDonald's, democratizing the once-exclusive dining-out experience for such groups as marginalized Anglos, African Americans, and Jews. The rise of Chinese food is also a classic American story of immigrant entrepreneurship and perseverance. Barred from many occupations, Chinese Americans successfully turned Chinese food from a despised cuisine into a dominant force in the restaurant market, creating a critical lifeline for their community. Chinese American restaurant workers developed the concept of the open kitchen and popularized the practice of home delivery. They streamlined certain Chinese dishes, such as chop suey and egg foo young, turning them into nationally recognized brand names.

Die Industrialisierung des 20. Jahrhunderts hat Arbeitsabläufe durch Standardisierungsmaßnahmen vereinheitlicht, Prozesse vehement verschlankt und dadurch Qualität, Effektivität und Effizienz maßgeblich erhöht. Ähnliche Phänomene sind innerhalb der letzten Dekade im Rahmen der IT-Industrialisierung im 21. Jahrhundert zu beobachten. Nur durch konsequente Überführung in fabrikartige Strukturen können IT-Service-Organisationen in Outsourcing-Geschäften einheitliche Qualitätsstandards sicherstellen und Skaleneffekte realisieren, die für den Kunden letztendlich zu Kostenvorteilen führen. In „Der Weg zur modernen IT-Fabrik“ beschreibt ein interdisziplinäres Autorenteam praxisnah und anhand der aktuellen Herausforderungen einer global agierenden IT-Service-Organisation den Prozess der IT-Industrialisierung, d. h. konkret die Transformation der Branche hin zur IT-Factory. Dabei werden neueste Erkenntnisse aus angewandter Forschung, Beratungspraxis und IT-Unternehmenspraxis zusammengeführt.
