"Food studies scholarship focuses on the meaning humans bring to food, and its investigations are not defined solely by a certain type of activity (e.g., consumption but not production) or by a certain scope or scale of human organization (thus not small-scale societies over individual behaviors). An approach this broad and heterodox often requires using the theories and methods of multiple disciplines: food studies scholars move easily between history, anthropology, literary studies, political science, development studies, et cetera" (Trubek, 2017, para. 3).
