A course that draws on selected fiction, documentary, and non-fiction. This class explores foods as they appear in literary texts. It also examines how foods trigger or drive the cultural, social, and economic changes. Students also focus on applying critical reading skills to appreciating the literary value of the written works about various foods. While attempting to find connections between how cultures value these subjects and how the values come to define the culture itself, students are also challenged to connect what they learn to real world situations.
