Intro to Food Studies

I never realized what food studies actually are and how complex it is. I have definitely thought a lot about how I relate to food on a deep level like this. I never saw this as a thing that people research and create a career out of. The methodologies are similar to those of history and American Studies, which I never created that connection or comparison. It is interesting that the subject includes cultural significance and individuals’ food habits. It is also interesting to see how interdisciplinary it is, with various aspects and topics that appeal to many different people. I was very struck by how the article described that food can tell stories. Stories that changed by culture, background, and even family and individuals. I really enjoyed this article and felt that it gave a great introduction to Food Studies and the methodologies that one can implement and use to research.
