Add your own review!

Overview

Bringing together multidisciplinary scholars from the growing discipline of food studies, Food Mobilities examines food provisioning and the food cultures of the world, historically and in contemporary times. The collection offers a range of fascinating case studies, including explorations of Italian food in colonial Ethiopia, traditional Cornish pasties in Mexico, migrant community gardeners in Toronto, and beer all around the world. In exploring the origins of the contemporary global food system and how we cook and eat today, Food Mobilities uncovers the local and global circulation of food, ingredients, cooks, commodities, labour, and knowledge.

Reviews

"""This excellent volume brings 'mobility studies' into food studies as a useful heuristic, something that further cements the emerging, interdisciplinary nature of the field. In many ways mobility tightens the extensive food links to migration, labour, and slavery studies. The state of the art footnotes are extremely useful and will help the book make an impact."" - Robert L. Nelson, Head and Professor of History, University of Windsor ""Food is impossible to study from any one perch alone. Cuisines, tastes, traditions, and innovations are all interrelated and shaped by a myriad of factors, including personal taste buds, access, economics, technologies, trade routes, environment, and, of course, culture and power. Food Mobilities is special for the ways that it focuses on food in action, which means people, nature, and ideas in action."" - Cindy Ott, Associate Professor of History and Material Culture, University of Delaware"
