Food is central to the human experience. From production to consumption, ritual to exchange, the study of food systems bridges many academic disciplines. At Washington University, faculty and students in all three sub-disciplines (sociocultural, archaeology, and physical anthropology) are engaged in teaching and research on aspects of food systems.
While we do not at this time offer a food studies track, this site serves as a clearinghouse for information on food studies. Explore the range of food studies courses offered, familiarize yourself with faculty and graduate student research interests, and learn about upcoming events.
