Summary: This book aims to ground theoretical debates about identity politics and issues of consumption through an exploration of one of the most universal and mundane features of everyday life. Using the example of food to demonstrate the importance of space and place in identity formation, this book contributes a geographical perspective to cultural studies work in this field. This book considers geographies of food consumption through spatial scales, moving from the body u morep to the global. It focuses on the social and cultural meanings of food consumption, including material on shopping, cooking and eating; food rituals and etiquettes; food technology and the food media (TV and radio cookery programmes, food magazines, advertising); as well as selected production practices (home growing, for instance). Drawing on literatures from anthropological, sociological and cultural readings of food consumption, as well as empirical material from research into domestic food consumption practices, Bell and Valentine articulate the relationship between food and geography. By exploring geographies of food consumption, we can begin to unpack the role food plays in constituting place identities. less
