Intro to Food Design

Fall 2019

Taught By: Carolin Mees

Section: A

CRN: 3871

Credits: 3

Food Design is an emerging trans-discipline concerned with any action that can improve our relationship to food in a variety of ways and instances. These actions can focus on the design of food objects, spaces, process and practices. This course is meant to introduce students to design and to empower them with the impact that design can have on concrete situations they encounter on a daily basis with regards to food. The course is conceived as a design project, with the possibility of conceptual research and hands-on components. The class activities combine field trips, lectures, studio-based workshops, and seminars. Both the fieldwork and applied research methods are then developed into creative works that support cultural diversity and social and environmental sustainability while addressing food and social justice aspects.
