What do we mean when we say anthropology? And specifically food anthropology? We're talking about a word we use often and a word embedded in Whetstone lexicon and ideology. But it's also a word we have never defined. While it is a generous term that at its core is about the relationship between human beings and the world, we recognize the problematic history of the genre, one historically comprised of white male academics who brought their biases with them into the field. 

To help us properly define the term food anthropology, we're joined by two women anthropologists, GinaRae LaCerva and Hanna Garth. Ecologist and anthropology GinaRae LaCerva is the author of Feasting Wild: In Search of the Last Untamed Food and her work is in an exploration of the modern-day implications of wild and foraged foods, including wild meat, and what it tells us about the current state of the world. Sociocultural and medical anthropologist Hanna Garth [] work specializes in the anthropology of food, while addressing issues of inequality and structural violence in Latin American, the Caribbean, and the United States.
