Food and Nutritional Science: Getting Started

A guide for food and nutritional sciences students to UCC library resources

Flavour of the month


Food pedagogies / edited by Rick Flowers and Elaine Swan. Published by Ashgate Publishing Limited, [2015]

Where to find: Boole Q+2, Call Number: 394.1 FLOW

In recent years everyone, from politicians to celebrity chefs, has been putting forward ideas about how we should grow, buy, prepare, present, cook, taste, eat and dispose of food. In light of this, contributors to this book argue that food has become the target of intensified pedagogical activity across a range of domains, including schools, supermarkets, families, advertising and TV media. Illustrated with a range of empirical studies, this edited and interdisciplinary volume - the first book on food pedagogies - develops innovative and theoretical perspectives to problematise the practices of teaching and learning about food. While many different pedagogues - policy makers, churches, activists, health educators, schools, tourist agencies, chefs - think we do not know enough about food and what to do with it, the aims, effects and politics of these pedagogies has been much less studied. Drawing on a range of international studies, diverse contexts, genres and different methods, this book provides new sites of investigation and lines of inquiry.
