Food Studies at Penn


Food is everywhere. It's an essential part of our daily lives, and has wide-ranging implications for our health and well-being, for the economy, for national and global politics, for the environment, for innovation and technology, for science and agriculture, for our cultural identity, and most importantly, for our long-term survival.

Food Studies @ Penn is designed to bring together in one place information about

and other resources relating to food and food studies here at Penn. We are beginning to develop a community of faculty, students and staff interested in working together to share insights and expertise and to learn from each other.

The website Food Studies @ Penn is a work-in-progress, and we will be adding more information and resources relating to food studies at Penn in the weeks and months ahead.

To contribute information to the website, whether for an event or a resourse or a course,
or to be added to the food studies e-mailing list, please contact
Lynne Farrington, Curator of Printed Books, Rare Book and Manuscript Library, at
