Synopsis

The influence of food has grown rapidly as it has become more and more intertwined with popular culture in recent decades. The Bloomsbury Handbook of Food and Popular Culture offers an authoritative, comprehensive overview of and introduction to this growing field of research. Bringing together over 20 original essays from leading experts, including Amy Bentley, Deborah Lupton, Fabio Parasecoli, and Isabelle de Solier, its impressive breadth and depth serves to define the field of food and popular culture.



Divided into four parts, the book covers:

- Media and Communication; including film, television, print media, the Internet, and emerging media

- Material Cultures of Eating; including eating across the lifespan, home cooking, food retail, restaurants, and street food

- Aesthetics of Food; including urban landscapes, museums, visual and performance arts

- Socio-Political Considerations; including popular discourses around food science, waste, nutrition, ethical eating, and food advocacy



Each chapter outlines key theories and existing areas of research whilst providing historical context and considering possible future developments. The Editors' Introduction by Kathleen LeBesco and Peter Naccarato, ensures cohesion and accessibility throughout.



A truly interdisciplinary, ground-breaking resource, this book makes an invaluable contribution to the study of food and popular culture. It will be an essential reference work for students, researchers and scholars in food studies, film and media studies, communication studies, sociology, cultural studies, and American studies.
