A network for those interested in the history of nutrition and related fields. This network is intended for the growing number of scholars, teachers, documentary filmmakers, and museum and library professionals engaged with the history of nutrition in any time period or region.
New Books in Food (http://newbooksnetwork.com/category/food/) is currently seeking hosts interested in conducting interviews with authors of new books on food, nutrition and related topics. Hosting the channel is a good way to bring the work of food scholars to the attention of large audiences. Interested parties should write Marshall Poe at email@example.com.
