Fall 2016 -- Special Topic: "Ethical Eating and the Food Movement"

This course will consider the industrialization of agriculture and the emergence of global food supply chains, and the corresponding efforts to find alternatives, such as sustainable and ethical food consumption, "slow food", "locavores", veganism, "meatless Monday", organic agriculture, community-supported agriculture and many more. Utilizing ethnographies, documentary films, short videos and photographs, the class will explore how issues such as environmental sustainability, globalization, health and social justice are embedded in new food movements, and we will ask if and how ethical eating has become primarily an elite social practice.
