Food Matters

Course #: SEMINR 127G

Description:
Why does food matter? In this class we will explore our relationship to food and the role we play in the complex food system. We will read a selection of texts from a variety of genres as we examine different views on the meaning of food, food consumption, production and sustainability. With the help of the readings and class materials, we will reconsider the ways in which we think about food and the association we have with food, and we will carefully reflect on the implications of our food choices and our responsibilities as consumers in the complex food system. We will have a wiki that I created for our class. Students will be able to extend our class discussions to cyberspace by having a place to further communicate with each other and exchange views and opinions on the issues discussed in class, as well as posting some assignments for review.
