Taking Food Public : Redefining Foodways in a Changing World
Edited by Psyche Williams-Forson and Carole Counihan.
Includes a chapter by College at Brockport faculty member Denise Copelton: Advocacy and everyday health activism among persons with Celiac Disease : a comparison of eager, reluctant, and non-activists.
The field of food studies has been growing rapidly over the last thirty years and has exploded since the turn of the millennium. Scholars from an array of disciplines have trained fresh theoretical and methodological approaches onto new dimensions of the human relationship to food. This anthology capitalizes on this particular cultural moment to bring to the fore recent scholarship that focuses on innovative ways people are recasting food in public spaces to challenge hegemonic practices and meanings. Organized into five interrelated sections on food production – consumption, performance, Diasporas, and activism – articles aim to provide new perspectives on the changing meanings and uses of food in the twenty-first century.--Publisher
