B. J. Isbell.

This 6 week course is a seminar that requires active participation of students. It meets on Wed. evenings for two hours beginning March and ending April.  The class will also meet one Saturday to visit local food producers. There is one required text: Stuffed and Starved by Patel who addresses one question: Why is half of the world’s population starving while the other half is over-weight. To answer this question he examines the history of the global food system and raises contemporary issues that the class will further investigate. Other readings will be posted on Blackboard. Students will be required to keep a food diary and research what is in the food that you consume.
