After working for the past few months to lay the foundation, we officially launched the Virginia Tech Food Studies Program this past week! It has been great to usher this into the community, and begin to share some of our projects.
We’ve built a new website: https://liberalarts.vt.edu/research-centers/food-studies-program.html
The program was profiled in a recent VT article: Introducing the flavor of community and the humanities to food studies
We have organized a series of launch events for Spring 2021:
And we have created opportunities for people to become Program Associates, Join our Listserv, Propose Courses for the Food Studies Minor.
Finally, we have set up social media accounts @VTFoodStudies on Twitter and Facebook.
Looking forward to developing this program as we move forward.
