SOC 348 - Food and Food Systems


This course approaches food - something Americans often take for granted - as a complex social system. We will investigate the social relationships and modes of organization that constitute the economic, political, environmental and social contexts for the development, production, distribution, promotion and consumption of food in contemporary society. Thus the course engages topics such as genetically modified food, the politics of food regulation, industrial agriculture, alternative agriculture and/or sustainable development.

Pre-req: Two 200-level SOC courses
Cross-listed with ENST 348 
3 credits
