Placed at the crossroads of diverse disciplines – medical sciences, information and communication science, sociology of food, agricultural sciences – this book focuses on media, food and nutrition. Contributors to this volume come from different countries including the United Kingdom, Germany, Mexico and Romania, and consider comparatively their native cultures. The book answers several questions: How are food and nutrition made visible and publicized? What is the role of media in relation to food and nutrition? What are the strategies of discourses surrounding food and nutrition within new public spaces?

Reviews

“This volume is published at a time when the media’s coverage of health issues is under scrutiny more than ever before given the current global pandemic. In this respect the volume is timely and acts as a pre-cursor for how the media in Eastern Europe and other parts of the world approach the reporting of health issues. The strength of the volume is the use of one methodological approach across many of the chapters which ensures consistency in how the data is managed. What results is a comprehensive and trustworthy volume with valuable conclusions.” (Andy Fox, University of West London, UK)

“The book  represents a high-quality, original contribution to the field. It gives new methodological approaches and international perspectives to the study of food and nutrition.” (Valentina Milenkova, South-West University, Bulgaria)
