Global Food History Journal

Global Food History is a peer-reviewed, academic journal with an international scope, presenting new research in food history from the foremost scholars in the field. The journal welcomes original articles covering any period from prehistory to the present and any geographical area, including transnational and world histories of food. Submissions on subjects relating to and from contributors outside of Europe and North America are particularly welcomed. In addition to original research, the journal welcomes articles on teaching food history, archival notes, translations, and other essays that help to build the field by encouraging and disseminating documentation; it will also contain book reviews. 

Global Food History aims to encourage a wider recognition of food as not only an important means for studying such traditional scholarly concerns as politics, class, gender, race, and ethnicity, but also an important field in its own right, exploring a vital element of the human experience. As history offers an ideal forum for conversations across the social sciences and humanities, the journal also invites submissions from scholars in allied disciplines who share historians’ concerns with change over time, causation, and periodization. The journal will be of interest to those engaged in the study of the cultural, social and economic history of food.
