LS 743 - We Are What We Eat: Food and the American Identity

(3.00 cr.)

Although most Americans will consume well over 75 tons of food in their lifetimes, food has remained on the margins of academic scholarship. This course brings cooking and eating from the margins using food as the focal point for an examination of culture, class, gender, and finally, the self. The preliminary thesis is that how we gather, prepare, and eat food reveals, and even establishes who we are. Intentionally and unintentionally, we express who we are by what we eat.
