Welcome to H-Food-Studies, H-Net’s network for the history, culture, and politics of food and drink globally.

Food Studies is by nature a field that incorporates interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary studies. H-Food-Studies provides a forum for sharing ideas, resources, discussions and opportunities in research, teaching, publication and other activities (in and outside of academia) related to the production, consumption, distribution, cultural meanings, and history of food and drink through time and around the world. It is a place to make and understand connections among the disparate disciplines of the field, pose thoughtful questions, find relevant answers and resources, and engage in stimulating discussions with others in the field.

Relevant discussions, reviews and posts are welcome and should competently inform and address the field. The editors will evaluate the posts for adherence to the purpose of the H-Food Studies board before accepting any post according to H-Net protocols.

Below you will find CFP's, Announcements, Discussion Topics, and New Book Announcements for the international field of Food Studies. Read, subscribe, and post your own!
