CRIT 315 Food

3 credits 45.0 hours
300 level undergraduate course

Food is a biological necessity, economic powerhouse, symbol for complex and diverse cultural meanings, and so much more. We will explore food from a wide variety of disciplines and critical lenses to explore important questions like some of the following: Is food political? Where does food come from? How do cultural understandings of food shape what we eat-or don’t eat? Many of our approaches to these questions will consider important issues like food’s relationships to social justice, environmentalism, and the arts.
