- Aesthetics of Food; including urban landscapes, museums, visual and performance arts
- Socio-Political Considerations; including popular discourses around food science, waste, nutrition, ethical eating, and food advocacy Each chapter outlines key theories and existing areas of research whilst providing historical context and considering possible future developments.
