Abstract

Over a year after the Feminist and Queer Perspectives on Food workshop (5 and 6 May 2022) at Technisches Museum Wien, the first Journal on Gender and Sexuality in STEM Collections and Cultures is published. The introduction reflects on food and eating as a situated, context-dependent and constantly changing practice and gives insights into the contributions of the issue. The common thread is deconstruction in the sense of questioning self-evident facts, as well as the diversity of constructive, formative and empowering moments in queer-feminist engagements with eating and nutrition practices and their communication.
