[Publication] Rethinking Asian Food Heritage

Book Cover

Foodways is an important cultural marker of identity in many globalizing Asian societies, and provides insight to not only social changes, cultural nationalism, and traditional values, but also cultural inheritance in the context of political economy. Edited by Professor Sidney C. H. Cheung, this book collects selected and revised papers from the international conference “Foodways and Heritage: A Perspective of Safeguarding the Intangible Cultural Heritage”. The thirteen chapters in this book provide rich ethnographic description and analysis on food as a kind of intangible cultural heritage as it interacts with social and political complexities in Asia’s diverse cultures.
