The study of the relationship between religion & food is an emerging new area of research among scholars of religion, and I have been part of an academic group working to expand studies in this area. As part of my work, I wanted to develop a bibliographic database of academic works (books, articles, theses) that in some way involve religion & food. I also wanted to make it public and accessible online, since I wanted to share it with my colleagues in many different colleges and universities across the world.

One of the jewels of Lake Forest College is the Richter Scholar Program, which allows a rising sophomore (second year student) to collaborate on a research project with  a faculty member during the summer between her or his first and second years. The bibliographic database is the product of Richter Scholar Jessica Chang, '17.
