Food, Culture, and Identity (A Special Topics Course)
As many of you know, I love to bake. I also love to cook. In fact I am a foodie. I grew up surrounded by great cooks and bakers. Some of my fondest memories center around food. In fact, when I was growing up our family sat down together for dinner nearly every night. And food was at the heart of any family gathering, whether we were celebrating or mourning.
For the first time, this spring 2015, I am bringing my love of food to the classroom. I will be teaching a special topics class (Psy 420) on Food, Culture, and Identity. In the course we will discuss identity, culture, and how food, what we eat, shapes and is shaped by our identity and culture.
In the coming weeks look for more information about the course.
