Honors Course for Spring 2015: ANHH 390 Anthropology of Food/Consumption

This course explores connections between what we buy and eat and who we are through cross-cultural study of how personal identities and social groups are formed via consumption, and food production and use.  Organized around critical discussions that examine two things: 1) global production and consumption for all types of goods and services, examining politics, resistance, adaptation and identity construction around the world; and, 2) what makes “good” food good (healthy, authentic, ethical). Guest speaker(s) and field trip(s) are planned; alternative assignment will be given to students to whom this is a hardship. Students have two options for the final paper in this course: writing a research proposal-type paper or writing a policy analysis paper.
