In the coming months, H-Net will pursue the possibility of shifting H-Eurasia-Food into a more general H-Food-Studies. This will entail broadening the scope of the network and comes with the hope of increasing its membership and the level of activity found here. Numerous announcements and other activity pertaining to food studies, foodways, and food history drift across the panorama of the H-Net Commons but miss the network. A central food studies site will bring all of them--and a wide range of interested scholars and practitioners--together.
We foresee H-Food-Studies becoming an important digital resource in a still growing, multi-disciplinary field with interesting overlaps with material culture studies. If you would be interested in becoming a part of H-Food-Studies as an editor, contributor, reviewer, writer, blogger, podcaster, or in developing resources for the field, or in an assortment of creative new ways made possible by H-Net's multi-media platform, please contact me at the email below.
Please direct any questions about this transition to Patrick Cox, H-Net Vice-President for Networks, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
