Patricia Allen Featured in Best of Gastronomica

An article by Dr. Patricia Allen, food systems & society department chair, was selected for inclusion in a "best of" retrospective issue of the esteemed journal Gastronomica.

Gastronomica's retrospective issue, available spring 2013, offers "some of the best and certainly some of the most varied writing" the journal has ever published. Dr. Allen's article, The Disappearance of Hunger in America, was one of 12 articles chosen from the journal's 12-year history. Her article discusses the semantics behind the United States Department of Agriculture's elimination of the word hunger from its evaluation of food security and the implications this has for discourse around and measurement of hunger in America.

Launched in 2001, Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture is one of the most well-respected sources of food writing in the world. The journal has "used food as an important source of knowledge about different cultures and societies, provoking discussion and encouraging thoughtful reflection on the history, literature, representation and cultural impact of food." It features a diverse mix of voices, bringing together a love of food with inquiry, writing and scholarship on a broad range of topics.
