New Research in Food Studies
2013-2014 Chicago Area Food Studies Working Group
Fall 2013 programs
The UIC Institute for the Humanities is proud to host a special series, “New Research in Food Studies.” Food Studies is rapidly becoming an important field of research in the humanities. Inherently interdisciplinary, food studies addresses a range of issues including the history, culture, politics, of food as well as questions of environment, agriculture, globalization and social justice.
This fall the Institute for the Humanities will bring three young scholars to campus to highlight new and creative work being done in the field of food studies.
