Food finds itself at the center of frequent and significant interactions, as it occupies an increasingly visible role in today’s world. This course examines how food representations establish, question, reinforce, reproduce, or destroy cultural and social assumptions about individuals and communities. Students will examine and critically analyze advertising materials, TV shows, films, cookbooks, social media, magazines, blogs, and videos, among other media, to identify elements and themes, connected with eating and ingestion, that shape popular culture and its impact on contemporary social and political debates.
