Eat, Grow, Heal: The Anthropology of Food and Justice

ANTH 312
Spring 2023
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: ENVS 315
Course Cluster and Certificates: Disability Studies, Health Studies, Sustainability and Environmental Justice

This course uses the lens of justice to examine the politics of food. We will look at the cultural and political-economic dynamics of food production and consumption, considering questions of taste, class, labor, marketing, and food sovereignty. We will also examine the environmental and social impact of food production and the consumption choices we make, from organic, to vegan, to animal proteins, to foraging and hunting. We will use a range of texts, including ethnographies, theory, film/documentary/TV shows, creative nonfiction, fiction, cookbooks, blogs, and magazine articles.
