Feasting and Dining in Antiquity

3.00 crs.

Loyola Core: Creative Arts & Cultures

What we eat and how we eat it help to define us in terms of social class/caste, religion, ethnicity, and even gender.  In this class, we will explore food as both sustenance and symbol.  The ancient Greeks and Romans were very aware of the power of food and dining.  Across the term, we will look at their “food issues” as well as our own.
