Sociology of Food and Food Justice

3.00 crs.

Knowledge-Values Courses: Social Science

In this class we explore key sociological concepts through the lens of food:  socialization, power, identities (both individual and national), social status, political economy, social inequalities, gender, social movements, and globalization. The study of food production and consumption allows us to understand the relationships between people, food and cultures.  Additionally, it allows us to explore how global capitalism influences the food choices we make.
