ANT368 - Anthropology of Food (3 cr.)

Food and its availability and production have, throughout history, defined who we are. The world is full of eatable things: but every culture defines for itself what in that world of eatable things is acceptable and what is not. Food, in other words, is a cultural creation. How food is produced, prepared and served and who is responsible for it, also varies from culture to culture as is its ceremonial importance. The past two centuries has seen a revolution in how food is prepared and distributed, as well as how people relate to food. And, of course, various food disorders from anorexia to obesity partially define our relationship to what and how much we eat. This course will examine all these issues and more. Liberal Arts Prerequisite(s): ANT102 or POI. Semester(s) Offered: Every Two Years.
