Begun in 2001 as a quarterly print publication from the University of California Press, Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture now makes an increasing amount of its old and new content available online. A wide variety of authors' and scholars' work can be found in Gastronomica, from working chefs and photographers to scholars of many disciplines. The editorial page promises a mix of "examinations of historical trends and transformations in food and eating; analyses of the political, economic, and social dimensions of food production and consumption; research briefs on emerging issues in fields related to food research and innovation; and interviews with key figures in the world of food (scholars, activists, producers, and consumers)." This certainly plays out in the table of contents of the most recent issue (Spring 2018), which lists research articles on topics as varied as food distribution; a biography of the "Chinese Julia Child"; and anti-intellectualism, and natural food. There's also a photo essay entitled "Who Harvests Our Food," on migrant farm workers. Full text of these articles are available to subscribers only; however, readers affiliated with large universities are likely to find that their library subscribes to Gastronomica.
