ANTH 280 - Anthropology of Food & Nutrition


Food is fundamental to human existence yet extremely cultural.  It is a source of nutrition, enjoyment, sociality and nurturing, but it can also has been used to divide and define the social groups, as well as justify conquest, slavery and exploitation.  This course examines what foods patterns can indicate about social and cultural patterns: which foods are used as cultural symbols, which operate as economic asset, as ethnic marker and as food ways relating to families, classes, nations and global communities.  We will also explore the relationships between cooking and cuisine, food and religion, gender and food, the art of food, and eating related to personal identity and body image.
