Graduate Journal aspeers Calls for Papers on "American Food Cultures"

full name / name of organization:

contact email: 
info@aspeers.com

A familiar proverb tells us that 'we are what we eat.' Indeed, food is not only a daily necessity to sustain the body. The need for food, its production, its preparation, and its consumption turn it into an important cultural site and a crucial analytical category. Studying 'food' accordingly brings together a number of academic fields ranging from biology and agriculture to sociology, political science, history, and literary and cultural studies, to name just a few. In their interdisciplinary openness and diverse cultural significance, food cultures are central to American studies.
