Food Studies Online

Food studies is a relatively new field, but its importance is felt in many major disciplines. The Food Studies Online database contains a wealth of information about how food shapes and defines people's lives, as seen through the eyes of philosophers, historians, scientists, sociologists, artists, anthropologists, activists, physicists, psychologists, chefs, and other important researchers.

The database includes a mix of video, ephemera, photographs, archives, and published monographs. Content types include cookbooks, menus, recipe books, marketing pamphlets, and posters.
