Instructor: Sabrina Weiss

Wednedays at 5:00 pm Eastern, 12 weeks, starting February 5th


Food is a universal human experience: everybody eats. Food is a way for us to connect across generations, locations, and societies. But every culture and community prepares, serves, and values food in different ways.  By studying and discussing food, we can understand much about people, their values, and their traditions.  

This course will explore food as a human experience, as tradition, as healthy/unhealthy, as a way that societies promote or undermine justice.  We will connect food to personal values, historical events, ethics about animals and the environment, and laws and policies. This will be a “college-style,” discussion-focused course.  Students will be expected to read a book about food during the term and do a project related to the course topic by the end of the course. 


No classes on April 8th.


Topic sections: 

Part 1: Culture of Food

Part 2: Un/Healthy Food?

Part 3: Ethics and Justice of Food
