Abstract

Food studies has become institutionally mainstreamed, with PhD programmes, dedicated appointments in areas such as global food history, and a raft of methodological guides. Given Singapore’s cultural position at the intersection of imperial history and multiculturalism and its geographical position as a major equatorial port city connected to complex Indian Ocean and imperial trade networks, it comes as no surprise that there has also been increased scholarly interest in the study of food in this important city-state. Food, foodways and foodscapes: Culture, community and consumption in post-colonial Singapore reflects this growing engagement.
