In 2017, she published the edited collection, Food, Masculinities and Home: Interdisciplinary Perspectives (Bloomsbury Academic Press), which brings together food and gender scholars from around the world to investigate masculine food practices (e.g. cooking, food shopping) as they relate to spaces and conceptualization of “home”.
