A&S 315 Food, Culture, and Sustainable Societies

We ask, critically, what sustainable and just mean in relation to food and why it matters - and what "culture" has to do with it. To do so we merge well-established studies and work in the anthropology of food with (1) environmental studies of alternative food systems and urban gardening/farming. (2) studies from political ecology engaging a range of analysis on food, (3) critical food studies, which considers race/class/gender/globalism in the context of food.
