Summary
As the first book-length study to bring the fields of modernism and food studies together, Modernism and Food Studies anchors the burgeoning field of modernist food studies. This volume collects theoretically and methodologically diverse essays that investigate modernist representations of food, broadly treated in phases from production to distribution and consumption. By exploring the profound relationship between modernist aesthetics and the new food cultures of modernity, Modernism and Food Studies uncovers new links between seemingly disparate spaces, cultures, and artistic media in a globalizing world.
