FYS 1045 - Alcohol and Food in History and Culture

Hours: 4
Alcohol and Food in History and Culture is a first year seminar that examines the roles that food and alcohol play in shaping societies and culture. We will explore questions of how food and alcohol consumption shapes and reflects our individual and cultural identity as well as differences in gender, class and race. We will trace the history of food and alcohol production and consumption and reflect on how the modern food system (including science) shapes our behavior. Through exploring questions like these, we will explore the roots of contemporary issues related to cultural identity, industrialization, globalization, and sustainability.
