Feminist Food Studies
This expansive collection enriches the field of food studies with a feminist intersectional perspective, addressing the impacts that race, ethnicity, class, and nationality have on nutritional customs, habits, and perspectives. Throughout the text, international scholars explore three areas in feminist food studies: the socio-cultural, the corporeal, and the material. The textbook’s chapters intersect as they examine how food is linked to hegemony, identity, and tradition, while contributors offer diverse perspectives that stem from biology, museum studies, economics, popular culture, and history. This text’s engaging writing style and timely subject-matter encourage student discussions and forward-looking analyses on the advancement of food studies.
With a unique multidisciplinary and global perspective, this vital resource is well suited to undergraduate students of food studies, nutrition, gender studies, sociology, and anthropology.
