Graduate Journal of Food Studies

GJFS

I do like to brag about my students in general, but this time they have done something truly awesome: The Graduate Journal of Food Studies launched today! This is a peer-reviewed food studies journal produced and reviewed by grad students. Boston University’s Gastronomy Program sponsored this first edition and our students did a wonderful job from research and design to reviewing and editing.

Have a read and spread the word. The journal is looking for new submissions for their next volume.
