MD 219 - The Culture of Food

This course explores the ways human beings all over the world have produced, prepared and consumed food and drink for thousands of years. It examines how and why “foodways” have changed from time to time and place to place, and how those changes have driven or been driven by other forms of social and economic change. Students will read, write and talk about contemporary issues in the history of food and cuisine and, to the extent practical, taste, touch and smell our subjects as well.
