Glenn Sheldon
CRN 49619 | Online

This course explores the symbolic power of food to reflect cultural or social affinities — across class, race and gender — in moments of change or transformation. Popular representations of food and eating inform and shape our lives; further, individualistic affiliations to our own ethnic and regional roots can be found in the foods we eat. These issues may be investigated along multiple lines, from multiculturalism to acculturation and assimilation. The content in this class draws from diverse disciplines: sociology, psychology, ecology, human geography, dietetics and nutrition studies, health sciences, women and gender studies, as well as cultural studies for the general reader.
