FYS 094 Bread

This class is an investigation of bread. Our investigation will lead us to understand bread through the filters of science and technology, politics, art, poetry, and religion; through our own experience making and eating bread; though the methods of production and distribution of bread in local, national, and global markets. The course will unpack our relationship with bread and the many ways it informs our cultural and political worldview. As a First Year Seminar, this course aims "to introduce students to intellectual inquiry by engaging them as thinkers, speakers, and writers."
