AN 222 - You Are What You Eat: Food and Culture


Credits: 4
An anthropological exploration of the food we eat.  Food is not only a necessary aspect of our survival, but also of  great importance to our cultural identities, economies, and political systems.  Students will explore the ways that food choice, production, and consumption contribute to disparities in health and socioeconomic status in the United States. We will also examine modern problems–including obesity and diet-related diseases, sustainability in food production, famines, and the loss of food variety.  Students will engage with local food systems to better understand the impacts of power and inequality among their peers and neighbors.
Note(s): Fulfills Social Science Requirement; Fulfills Bridge Experience requirement
