ANTH 335 - The Anthropology of Food: Culture, Class, Power and Change (4)

Why do we eat what we eat? This exciting new course explores the myriad ways that different societies and cultures across the world produce, value, and consume food. We will learn how food practices and rituals are changing with globalization, new technologies, and a faster pace of life. Through films, readings, and fieldwork, students will engage with the current debates about the sociocultural, political, and ecological contexts of food.
