Like many of its “field” counterparts in academia, food studies emerged from both intellectual and activist engagement in a landscape that raised questions about existing boundaries – between material and mental activities, public and private, production and consumption, self and other.  These interests and contestations have resurged at a time when inequality is also consolidating, increasing, and yet being challenged.  This talk explores opportunities for food studies that centralize and support social change.
