          Anthropology of Eating                            
The pursuit of more and valued food has helped shape the course of history, inspired conflict and empires, and expanded the horizons of commerce. The ways in which different peoples identify, procure, harvest, prepare, serve, consume, and distribute foods reveal much about cultures. Using a cross-cultural framework, students explore relationships with food and eating from personal, domestic, societal, and global levels. This includes, among other topics, food as a sacred and healing commodity, gender and food production, scarcity and overabundance, food and medicine, and relationships between political economy and food choice, health consequences, and availability. Prerequisite: ANTH 211, SOCY 101 or consent of the instructor. For more information contact kathykavanagh@comcast.net.
