Course Description

This course provides insights on social, historical and economic processes that shape what and how we eat. We will review how the food system is organized and how it affects people's food choices. We will discuss the relations between broader social and economic structures, such as class and gender relations, access to food, and everyday eating practices. We will also study causes of problems in the food systems, such as hunger, obesity and the farm crisis.

Notes

This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
