Intro to Food Studies

Spring 2019

Taught By: Shayne Figueroa

Section: A

CRN: 2976

Credits: 3

In this course, we explore the connections between food, culture, and society, looking at the role of food in the construction of personal and collective identity in terms of body, race and ethnicity, class, gender, nationality, and social movements. We also examine cultural aspects of food politics, paying particular attention to the United States but also considering globalization and international flows of people, goods, ideas, and technologies. The course introduces analytical approaches and methods that are widely used in the growing research field of food studies. This course counts toward the Gender Studies minor.
