ANTH 323 - Food For Thought: Nutritional Anthropology

4 credits
This course is an evolutionary and cross-cultural exploration of the comlpex nature of the human experiences in satisfying needs for food and nourishment. The approach is biocultural, exploring the interaction between the biological basis of human food choices and the cultural context that influences food acquisition and choice. We will explore the relationship between nutrition and health from an evolutionary perspective, exploring how an understanding of diet and food preferences in our distant ancestors affects us today. Other themes to be explored include the sociocultural context of human foodways and the political economy of food. The primary aim of this course is to understand the co-evolutionary relationshipof humans and their food systems, as well as how the physical well being of humans is affected by their food systems. Enrollment priority given to junior and senior majors and minors. Prerequisite: ANTH 103 . Offered spring semester in alternate years.
