While selecting anthropology books for my library I realized that I haven’t really posted anthropology resources for my blog before. Thus, today I want to talk about World Food Habits, a bibliography of resources pertaining to the anthropology of food and nutrition.
World Food Habits is divided both by world region (e.g. East Asia and historical Europe) and by topic (i.e. eating attitudes, feasts & festivals, and vegetarian diets). The site was last updated in March 2011, and is maintained by Robert Dirks of Illinois State University.
It’s really an excellent resource for anyone interested in food/cultural anthropology, and I’m going to use it myself as a collection development aid!
