One cannot truly study culture, economics, business, politics, and the process of globalization without understanding the important role of food and food systems. Alexander Street's Food Studies Online provides researchers rich archival content, visual ephemera, monographs, and videos that explore how food shapes the world around us. Food studies is a relatively new field of study, but its importance is felt in many major disciplines. It has social, historical, economic, cultural, religious, and political implications that reach far beyond what is consumed at the dinner table. This exciting collection aids researchers in answering such questions as, “What are the environmental and social consequences of various sorts of eating habits?”, “What is a food system?”, and “How is culinary culture shaped by the dynamics of colonialism, immigration, urbanization, and global capitalism?”
