Despite the fact that Food Studies has grown into a well-established field, literary scholars have not yet fully addressed the prevalent themes of food, eating, and consumption in Chicana/o literature. This exciting anthology examines representations of food in contemporary Chicana/o literary texts. Here, contributors propose food consciousness as a paradigm to examine the literary discourses of Chicana/o authors as they shift from the nation to the post-nation. The essays articulate the transnational and global dimensions and introduce food consciousness as an alternative paradigm to Gloria Anzaldua's 'mestiza consciousness,' Chela Sandoval's 'differential consciousness,' and Emma Perez's 'historical consciousness.'
