Waste&Want-Global Food Sys-HON — 3812
ANT 7515 – 3 credits
Shannon E. Bessette

Students will understand how food is one of our most basic needs, but also how food is manipulated and controlled. Few of us think about how food is produced, where in the world it comes from, or how it must travel to get to us. This course helps students understand social, political and economic processes such as colonization, industrialization, and corporatization, and how they laid the foundation for the current global food system. Students will also engage with ongoing, contemporary concerns such as the relationship between agriculture and the environment, food waste, labor practices, food aid, and how race, class, gender, and nationality impact our experience of food systems. Throughout the course, we?ll look at how people resist and reshape food systems, and how we can find alternatives that do more to protect people and the environment. No requisites. J fall, C, fall.
