New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2022

ANTH 50.56 Anthropology of Food

In this course we engage with critical, scholarly, and public media that deepen our understanding of the role of food in human social, economic, political, and health worlds. We think about the local, national, and global dimensions of our current food systems. Relying primarily on cultural anthropology's lens, we examine how foodways shape, and are shaped by, economic, political, and cultural practices. We explore not just preparation, cultivation, and consumption of food, but also the symbolic processes through which foods, and our relationships with them, are made meaningful.
