FYSP 099 - Food and Community

FC ARHU WINT
4 credits
In his 1957 book,Mythologies , Roland Barthes describes how, although “wine is a good and fine substance, it is no less true that its production is deeply involved in French capitalism,” and that “wine cannot be an unalloyedly blissful substance, except if we wrongfully forget that it is also the product of an expropriation.”Inspired by Barthes’s critical readings of food, community, and culture, this seminar provides students an opportunity to critically examine how food means, how we relate to our food, and how our food choices impact not only our individual health but also the health, labor, and living conditions of those in our communities.
