“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed.” — Dwight D. Eisenhower

“War is a beastly business, it is true, but one proof that we are human is our ability to learn, even from it, how better to exist.” — M.F.K.Fisher

  • the provisioning of military personnel and civilian war workers
  • the agro-ecological effects of warfare
  • government food policies during wartime

  • the impact of occupying armies on local foodways (and vice versa)
  • cultural representations of food and war
  • wartime food propaganda
  • food, war, and the body

Approaches may incorporate a variety of fields, including literature, film, visual and performing arts, historical studies, and the social sciences. And for the sake of perspective and comparison, we especially welcome articles that look at non-western and pre-modern case studies.

Food, Culture, and Society is the official journal of the Association for the Study of Food and Society (ASFS). ASFS is a multidisciplinary international organization. Its members approach the study of food from numerous disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, as well as in the world of food beyond the academy. FCS is published three times a year by Berg Publishers.
