This all-digital series is a peer-reviewed collection
of previously published works by AAFCS in the Journal of Family & Consumer
Sciences, Family & Consumer Sciences Research Journal, AAFCS Webinars, and other selected works. Each volume will focus on a specific topic within the
field of family and consumer sciences.
This initial Volume of the Compendium Series reviews the
illustrious history of the Family and Consumer Sciences Body
of Knowledge and presents the current framework that serves as the foundation of the profession.
For more than 100 years, the American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (AAFCS), founded as the American Home Economics Association, has provided leadership and support to professionals whose work assists individuals, families, and communities in making informed decisions about their well being, relationships, and resources to achieve optimal quality of life.
AAFCS is the only professional association for family and consumer sciences (FCS) students and professionals from both multiple practice settings and content areas. Our members are educators, administrators and managers, human service and business professionals, researchers, community volunteers, and consultants. They provide research-based knowledge about the topics of everyday life, including human development, personal and family finance, housing and interior design, food science, nutrition and wellness, textiles and apparel, and consumer issues.
