“Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you who you are,” wrote Brillat-Savarin, a French critic and epicure of the nineteenth century. As Brillat-Savarin's comment indicates, the food we eat speaks volumes about our background, our economic status, and our social aspirations. In this course, we will explore questions of identity, politics, and economics by reading and writing about this topic of universal interest. We will begin by learning to translate into words the various senses that food engages (taste, smell, sight, touch, sound). We will then move on to consider the culture of food and the ways that our identities are often defined by the foods we eat or don’t eat. Finally, we will take up broader ethical and political concerns, reflecting on the ways that our diets affect our health, our society, and our ecosystem. In this final course unit, we will consider issues of global food production, vegetarianism, and local and organic food movements in the United States. Students will choose one aspect of local, international, or historical food culture and produce a research project proposal, culminating in an open letter drawing the reader's attention to an aspect of contemporary or historical food culture that has bearing on larger social concerns.
