This chapter on food and television defines an area of study found primarily within the humanities, which focuses on the social, cultural, and political implications of food’s presence within the medium of television. A literature review offers an introduction to the theory and method of scholarship on food television, dividing the work among historiographic approaches, industry studies, and critiques of gender and class, noting the predominance of ideological analyses. The chapter encourages future research in all areas of this young subfield, especially those focused on race as well as food television audiences. The chapter ends with resources for graduate programs, funding, and archival research.
