Food Innovation And Technacy Genre Theory: Implications For Teaching And Learning, Angela Turner, Kurt Seemann

One of the most rapidly developing and ubiquitous areas on offer in many school curriculums is the study of our physical and digital world; we may refer to this broad area as the study of anthropological technologies. A significant dimension of this field is the study of food technology, which is under pressure to be a source for solutions to world food production.
