Eating your words : a look at the contemporary food movement as seen through the perspectives of four leading authors and activists
MetadataShow full item record
Food provides human beings with a connection to the natural world. This research helps to illustrate the interconnectivity of food and of the food movement as it relates to so many other social, ecological and cultural movements. I examined the works of four authors communicating important messages about our food; where is comes from, how it is grown, and what we need to change about our food habits. This research also asks: what are the implications of the food movement for environmental education and communication; have these authors discussed the implications of our food choices in a meaningful way; and, are these books, and other similar forms of media, indicative of a broader social movement or revolution? I believe that through food meaningful environmental messages can be transmitted to diverse audiences and that literature provides an effective medium in which to communicate those messages.
