Course Description:

Food is much more than its dictionary definition of “any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink in order to maintain life and growth” (New Oxford American Dictionary). Indeed, food is extremely complex. It connects us with nature, serves as a key arena of social engagement, and is a deeply contested political terrain. In this seminar we examine food in all its complexity, with a focus on food as a tool for social change.
