Myriad factors shape our relationship with food. What we choose to eat (or not eat), how we acquire it, whom we eat it with, and how we consume it is influenced by technology, economics, politics, fashion, religion, and other aspects of culture. MAPACA's Food and Culture sessions invite scholars from all disciplines to address the intersections of food and the human experience.
