The Listserv is a communications forum created and designed for the membership of the Association for the Study of Food and Society (ASFS) to discuss issues and share news related to food and society. This is a moderated list. That means posts to the list are individually approved by the moderator. The list is moderated daily but there is often a lag due to technical and human limitations. Posts are rejected for any number of reasons. These include:

  • Spam
  • Ads/press releases from non-ASFS members
  • Off-topic emails
  • Ready reference questions that could easily be answered through a search engine
  • Responses intended for or only relevant to a single member
  • Duplicate or similar responses
  • Quick/insignificant responses (i.e. “I agree.”)
  • Inappropriate responses
  • Posts that begin a thread recently ended
