ANTH 128 - Food and Culture

Upper Division

Food touches every aspect of life. It can be a symbol of love, sex, community, and national, ethnic, and gender identity. The cultural complexities behind the symbolic meaning of “food” in a cross-cultural context are vast. Furthermore, the political and economic ramifications of consumption, as well as the production and distribution of food, is fraught with significance about what it means to be a responsible human being in an increasingly global world. This course exposes students to the myriad roles that food plays in all cultures, while critically engaging our own cultural attitudes and assumptions about food.
