Description

“You are what you eat”—this commonplace coined by French gastronome Brillat-Savarin expresses in the form of an aphorism the myriad roles that food and drink, their production, preparation and consumption, play in our lives. Food and drink are often markers of national culture, as well as individual identity; they trigger memory and storytelling; they encapsulate the course of history; they reveal gender dynamics; they become environmental threats. Who cooks, who eats and drinks, what, when, and how much is consumed, what is acceptable, desirable or, on the contrary, disgusting tells us about cultural taboos, social status, gender roles, economic prosperity or lack thereof, ethnic and racial relationships, environmental awareness, and politics. We are, indeed, what we eat. We will examine these interrelated aspects through representations of food and drink in German-language literature and film.

Class Format:

Instruction Mode: As a DC (Distance due to COVID) course, all aspects of this course will be fully compatible with remote online learning.

Learning Mode: We will meet at the scheduled classtime. Occasionally, there may be a class period that is asynchronous but this will be announced as the semester progresses. Course meetings will be conducted on Zoom. Students will need access to a camera and a microphone. Students will be required to participate using video and audio during class times.

Course Testing/Assessment: Exams/quizzes/assignments will be asynchronous.
