AUSOC341 - Sociology of Food

This course places food into broader socio-cultural context to better understand why we eat what we eat. Topics will include: patterns of food production, distribution and consumption; the role of rood in relation to embodiment, identities, culture, class, and gender; the socio-cultural and political-economic organization of local, national, and global food systems; the implication of the food system for health, urban-rural relations, ecological sustainability, and social justice; food as a site of power relations, contestation, and social movements. In sum, this course will offer a sociological perspective of the food system and of engagements for its social transformation. Prerequisites: One of AUSOC 101, 103, 105; and *3 at a senior level in Sociology.
