Journal Aims and Objectives
Archaeology of Food and Foodways is an international refereed journal showcasing original scholarly work on the relationship between human sustenance and society. This publication foregrounds the dynamics between food and culture, food and environment, and shifts in foodways over time, covering time periods from prehistory through the 19th century. We encourage the submission of original work by archaeologists, historians, Classicists, and other scholars who address methodologies, theories, historical trajectories, cross-cultural comparisons, and controversies surrounding material culture and past foodways. We also encourage the submission of work by scholars and other specialists who have applied archaeological findings to such domains as public policy, culinary arts, and dietary regimes.
We welcome submissions that make use of any form of material culture or scientific methodologies. Papers of a more theoretical nature or with a methodological focus will also be considered as long as they have an archaeological basis; they may elucidate experimental archaeological or ethnoarchaeological work if applied to a specific archaeological problem. Submissions may have any geographical focus. AFF does not publish short notes, descriptive excavation reports, or limited artifact studies. At this time AFF also does not publish book reviews. The types of articles sought are:
Research Articles submissions may include up to 8 images and should include 6,000-12,000 words of text, excluding bibliography, abstracts, and photo captions.
We publish submissions of original work by scholars addressing theoretical convergences, historical trajectories, paradigmatic shifts, broad crosscultural comparisons, and debates in foodways scholarship. As with Research Article submissions, these contributions should address approaches to foodways in time periods from prehistory through the end of the 19th century. They may include up to 8 images and should include 6,000-12,000 words of text, excluding bibliography, abstracts, and photo captions.
Applied Articles We also encourage the submission of work by scholars and other specialists who have applied archaeological findings to such domains as public policy, culinary arts, tourism industries, food revitalization projects, religious practice, and dietary regimes. Applied Articles may include up to 8 images and should include 4,000-10,000 words of text, excluding bibliography, abstracts, and photo captions.
Photo Essays We publish photo essays that document experimental archaeology, ethnoarchaeology, and applied ethnography to enhance understandings of foodways in the past or demonstrate applied techniques formulated through archaeological research. Photo Essay submissions may include up to 20 color or black and white images, and should include 2,000-3,000 words of text, excluding bibliography, abstracts, and photo captions.
Thematic Issues We welcome invitations to publish thematic issues of the journal. Special issues or special clusters within the usual journal format will focus on a particular thematic interest, and include 3-7 articles in total. These articles must follow the submission guidelines above for Research Articles, Applied Articles, and Photo Essays. Thematic organizers interested in this type of submission must approach the Editors prior to submission.
