Voices and visuals from the Canadian foodscape
Welcome to the inaugural issue of Canadian Food Studies/La Revue canadienne des études sur l’alimentation, the open-access, online journal of the Canadian Association for Food Studies/l’Association canadienne des études sur l’alimentation (CAFS/ACÉA). Our journal arrives on the scene in the context of a well-established organization that has, for the past decade, promoted multidisciplinary interaction, debate, and research about food in Canada. The prolific and diverse nature of this food-related research was hailed earlier by Power & Koç (2008) in a guest-edited collection of articles by Canadian scholars to celebrate the founding of CAFS. Indeed, every year since 2006, the CAFS meeting at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences has served as a communal table, laden with a smorgasbord of collaborative and transformational ideas. The feast continues, not just among academic faculty and students, but shared with health professionals, artists, teachers, farmers, fishers, environmentalists, chefs, and colleagues from NGOs, food networks and policy councils. Collectively, these actors form the voices and visuals of the Canadian foodscape. The purpose of our journal is to offer a professional, academic forum for the astonishing breadth and depth of material that they can produce.
