HIST 8.06; X-list: LACS 8
History of Food
We will look at issues of food production and consumption, and how our relationship to food contributes to the political and social structures that we live with. Our approach will be historical and pay special attention to the ways in which our production and consumption of food has been shaped by the movement of people over the last century. The readings explore how food creates ways for people to form bonds of belonging while also creating bonds of control and regimes of inequality.
