"Diners, Dudes, and Diets: How Gender and Power Collide in Food Media and Culture"

Nov 13, 2020

Our guest is Emily Contois, Assistant Professor of Media Studies here at The University of Tulsa. Her new book, which she tells us about, is "Diners, Dudes, and Diets: How Gender and Power Collide in Food Media and Culture." It is, per Library Journal, "a fascinating work of cultural studies that makes evident the continued power and threat of explicitly gendered food production and consumption in the 21st century. [This book is] recommended broadly for students and scholars of fields related to gender, culture, and consumption." And please note that Prof. Contois will take part in a "virtual book launch" event for this volume, which happens online on Monday the 16th at 7pm. (The event is being presented by Magic City Books; full details are posted here.)
