Food and the Environment

Fall 2018

Taught By: Kristin Reynolds

Section: A

CRN: 4928

Credits: 4

This course examines the relationship between the food system (production, distribution, consumption and disposal) and the urban environment. We will learn about the environmental impacts of food on cities and the pressures of consumption patterns on urban foodsheds. The course will explore how different frameworks, from urban ecology to environmental justice, and different analytical methods, from risk assessment to lifecycle analysis, help us to identify strategies for making the food system more sustainable and resilient. For the course project, students will research a food system-related environmental problem and prepare a brief recommending a policy or design innovation to address the problem.
