Description

This course explores the changing cultural and social value of food in American life through a range of different sources, disciplines, and case studies. We will be guided by how convenience, responsibility, and identity shape our relationship to a dynamic American food industry, while paying attention to how immigration, trauma, and appropriation constitute the industry itself. By doing so, this course seeks to help students connect the food histories, policies, and myths that converge to define American belonging.

Course Requirements:

Assessments for this course includes team-based work and individual quizzes

Intended Audience:

This course is accessible to all undergraduate students at all levels.
