FOOD IN SOCIETIES   [Archived Catalog]
2022-2023 Bradford Campus Catalog


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
Humans, unlike other animals, exercise far more choices when it comes to what they eat. These choices involve simple decisions like where we eat, what we eat, with whom we eat, and when. But how do we account for the diversity that we see in how we obtain, distribute and consume food? Is food simply something that we eat, or something far more important in terms of how we relate to each other morally, socio-economically, politically and religiously? This course will address these questions through the intellectual frameworks of philosophy and anthropology.
