FOOD IN SOCIETIES - ANTHROPOLOGY
 

Subject: ANTH

Course Number : 0225

Course Title:  Food In Societies Anthropology (Cross listed with PHIL 0225)

Course Description:

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.
