Advanced Research Seminar: Food and Society

SOC 399E
Spring 2017 not offered
Course Cluster: Health Studies

This advanced research seminar is open to sociology majors in their senior year or in the second semester of their junior year and fulfills the capstone requirement for the major. This course is divided into two halves. In the first half, we survey a variety of food-related topics that may include food and identity (class, ethnicity, nation, gender); food systems (the global, national, and local intersections of production and consumption); food politics, policy formation, and activism. This overview will serve as a foundation for the second half of the course, in which students develop a substantial research paper, with class sessions focused on project-related reading, work-in-progress discussions, and final presentations.
