Food in Culture and Social Justice  Graduate Minor

Print Version Print
College of Liberal Arts|School of Language, Culture, and Society



This interdisciplinary graduate minor in Food in Culture and Social Justice prepares students to examine food from a variety of perspectives. When and how we eat, what is considered acceptable to eat, how we prepare it, and how we learn about producing and eating food are all fascinating questions to explore by humanists and social scientists. Histories of particular food commodities and changes in the way people think about sustaining healthy bodies richly contextualizes our present practices. Cultural analyses of food and food production lead us to question the level of social justice within the local and global food systems. Students complete at least 1 credit of experiential/service learning which will be spent volunteering with food-related organizations.
