AN 4000 - Food and Culture

This course is an anthropological exploration of food and culture. We will examine the rituals of commensality, the cultural constructions of meaning, and historical processes associated with food items and consumption. Since what we choose to eat (or not eat) is intimately linked to cultural ideas about who we are, this course will also investigate practices that surround culturally specific understanding of health, illness, the human body, identity, and globalization.

Prerequisite: AN 1000 , or an upper-division anthropology course, or instructor approval.
