I am an undergraduate student at the University of Texas at Austin interested in food. We don’t have a degree plan called, “Food Studies”. So, I started taking a bunch of random classes with food topics (Anthropology, Nutrition, Geography, etc. ). I have come to learn that you can take almost any field of study and relate it to food. So then, what is Food Studies? What is it that I am interested in about food? I decided to start a blog about my experience becoming a “Food Studies” major. I want to figure out what things interest me about food, and what I will do with these studies for my career. Hopefully others interested in Food Studies will participate and together we can navigate and share information about this new focus of food and motivate the creation of new Food Studies programs across the world.
