Intro to Food Studies Blog Post

I think the best part of this reading for me was at the beginning – “Food studies, then, is not the study of food itself but rather the study of the relationships between food and the human experience.” This clarified for me the most what to focus on when thinking about this course and our timeline project. It’s really interesting to me the ways that food and the experience of eating can be used as a framework for understanding different people and cultures. Food becoming a tool in this way was super interesting to me and all of the perspectives and approaches people can take to research food studies was enlightening if not a little overwhelming! Overall a super cool read!
