ANTH 3250 - Food and Culture

5 credit hours
Food is an intensely personal and deeply cultural practice embedded in every aspect of our lives. As anthropologists who study food, we are interested in how food shaped human evolution, how different cultures produce, conceptualize and consume food, and how food is changing in our increasingly global world. In this course, we will examine how variations in race, class, gender, and nationality shape people's relationships with food. This can mean many things including what people eat, the types of food to which they have access, the meanings they attribute to particular foods or ways of producing and distributing food. You will leave this class with a new appreciation of how food and food-related issues are windows onto the ways that culture, inequality, and social power shape our world and our everyday lives.
