Food studies
  • 1. Food studies is an interdisciplinary field that explores the cultural, social, economic, and environmental aspects of food production, consumption, and distribution. It examines how food shapes identity, community, and power dynamics, and how food choices impact health, sustainability, and global food systems. Food studies draws on various disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, history, economics, and environmental studies to critically analyze food practices, policies, and systems. By studying food, researchers seek to understand the complexities of food cultures, food justice issues, and the implications of our food choices on individuals and societies.
