Abstract:

"Long-held assumptions about women, home, food, and cooking have broken down. In an increasing number of households, women are either absent from or share domestic work more equally with men. At the same time, the visibility of men's cooking has increased through TV shows, books, blogs, and websites devoted to food and cooking. Terms like 'gastrosexual' have emerged to describe the growing male market for kitchenware and the growing prestige of public masculine foodwork. Whilst scholars have begun to examine how men's increasing engagement with homemaking practices shapes masculine identities and transforms meanings of 'home', Food, Masculinities and Home is the first book to focus specifically on food. An international, multidisciplinary range of contributors explores questions such as: - How do food practices shape masculinities and notions of home, and vice versa? - To what extent are existing gender hierarchies being challenged? To what extent is masculine privilege being reiterated? - To what extent are masculinities being reshaped by the increasing presence of men in kitchens and food-focused spaces? With ever-growing interest in both food and gender studies, this is a must-read for students and researchers in food studies, gender studies, cultural studies, sociology, geography, anthropology, and related fields"--
