From high-tech kitchen gadgets and magazines to the Food Network, over the last few decades, there has been a huge rise in food-focused consumption, media, and culture. In addition, the discourses surrounding food range from media coverage of American school lunchrooms and hunger issues to news stories about urban gardening or buying organic products at the local farmers market. In light of the heightened awareness of foods significance within contemporary society? no longer viewed merely as a means of survival?there is a further need to explore it.International and comprehensive in approach, this volume provides the first book-length study of food from a communication perspective. Scholars with diverse research foci examine and explore this emerging area of study to provide definitive and foundational examples of how food operates as a system of communication and how communication theory and practices can be understood by considering food in this way. In doing so, the book serves as a means for spurring future dialogues on the subject due to its vast array of ideas about food and its relationship to our communication practices.
