Food and Culture available this fall

Food is always a good subject to study. Throw in culture and you have a fascinating "menu."
A new course called Food and Culture will be offered fall semester. Taught by Assistant Professor David Fazzino, the anthropology course (492/692, CRN 78568/78575) will focus on all aspects of the food system from production (agroecology, industrial and genetically modified foods) to distribution and exchange, food security, Traditional Ecological Knowledge and consumption (cultural consumption and the meaning of food).

It will cover not only anthropology but also Fazzinos' background in law and agroecology. Email Fazzino at for more information.
