Program in American Studies and Eddie S. Glaude, Jr.

Conference at Princeton University, April 1-2, 2016

Critical food studies is a growing interdisciplinary field that took root first in anthropology, geography, science studies, and history but has become a vibrant area for scholars of literature, new media, and rhetoric. Critical Food Studies is transforming scholarship in literary studies, environmental humanities, digital humanities, postcolonial, race and gender studies. The Program in American Studies at Princeton is proud to present this opportunity to explore the intersection of American cultures with food studies and to think about new work that confronts the meetings of literary and aesthetic theory, animal/human work, race and science, and technology studies.
