About the Author:

Julie M. Parsons is a sociology lecturer, Associate Head of School (Teaching and Learning) and Deputy Director of the Centre for Methodological Innovations (CMI) at Plymouth University, UK. She has published in the areas of auto/biography, maternal identities, gender and contemporary food cultures, and food as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).

Review:

“Julie M. Parsons’ Gender, Class and Food is a welcome addition to this literature. ... this book demonstrates how foodways are shaped by gender and class. Written in an accessible style and incorporating a broad range of literature without falling into the trap of sociological jargon, it is appropriate for graduate and undergraduate courses in food studies and sociology.” (Norah MacKendrick, Review of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Studies, April, 2017)

“Concerned with examining food ‘memories’ and the socio-cultural contexts in which these are formed, this British sociologist employs a qualitative method not often seen in food studies: computer-mediated communication. ... Parsons solicits and analyzes 75 auto/biographical food narratives from individuals residing in the United Kingdom. ... an important and timely read, a noteworthy contribution to the research trajectory set by DeVault (1991).” (Michael Chrobok, Antipode, May, 2016)

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 208 pages. In the 21st century neo-liberal era, everyday foodways or ways of doing food are a powerful means of drawing boundaries between social groups; distinguishing the self from the other; and defining who we are and where we belong. This book draws upon autobiographical food narratives from over seventy people and emphasises the power of everyday foodways in maintaining and reinforcing social divisions along the lines of gender and class. Parsons observes that everyday foodways have become a potent means of doing gender and performing a middle class habitus. Furthermore the book argues that there are legitimate ways of purchasing, preparing and consuming food, when, where and with whom, which impact upon the presentation of self in everyday life. Incorporating respondents voices and values, Gender, Class and Food provides unique insights into family, motherhood, health, embodiment and taste, and how these impact foodways. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9781137476401
