ANT 300 Food and Culture

This advanced anthropology course is a two-part study of food and culture. Part one concentrates on an anthropological investigation of food and its relationship to culture. The theoretical approach used in this section is based on systems analysis, looking at each major cultural system, and how food relates to them. Part two will be student-led review of four to five cultural cuisines. The goals for this part of the course will be for students to investigate different cultures and their foods while applying the theoretical perspectives and analysis techniques previously learned. Prerequisite: ANT 220  or permission of instructor.
