Reviews

Published in Association with the Society for the Anthropology of Food and Nutrition (SAFN) and in Collaboration with Rachel Black and Leslie Carlin

“In sum, Food Culture is a useful resource text, especially for teaching. Each chapter is well written and organised in a way that is easy for the reader to access; they give robust and clear overviews of methodological approaches, contextualise these theoretically, and provide examples and case studies of how they can be used… Food Culture is more than a methods’ textbook and it will be an invaluable resource for higher-level undergraduates and postgraduates in that it offers practical, conceptual, and case study content… The book’s value also extends beyond a student audience, and its intellectual rigour ensures it offers something new for more established research- ers. As such, it is a welcome and useful addition to the Food Studies canon.” • Anthropos

Description

This volume offers a comprehensive guide to methods used in the sociocultural, linguistic and historical research of food use. This volume is unique in offering food-related research methods from multiple academic disciplines, and includes methods that bridge disciplines to provide a thorough review of best practices. In each chapter, a case study from the author's own work is to illustrate why the methods were adopted in that particular case along with abundant additional resources to further develop and explore the methods.

Janet Chrzan is Adjunct Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania. Her research explores the connections between social activities, dietary intake and maternal and child health outcomes.

John Brett is retired faculty in the Department of Anthropology, University of Colorado Denver with a research focus on global and local food systems, food security and food justice.
