Antonia Mazel explores how the contemporary food movement uses food as a vehicle for social and cultural change, combining political concerns and pleasure in a form of political hedonism.
Through a theoretical framework of governmentality and media studies, she investigates how the food movement has politicized food and how this has produced a discourse of 'good food', 'eating right', and 'good citizenship', shaping the idea of a responsible, informed 'citizen-consumer'.
