Queering Food

Queering Food: Race, Place, and Social Justice
In this course we will examine food studies, politics, and movements through the lenses of queer, feminist, and critical theory (including work that centralizes gender, class, race, disability, sexuality, and place). In doing so, we will consider dominant and subaltern approaches to food both within the U.S. and transnationally. Throughout, we will explore how critical theory can offer alternative conceptualizations of food politics and justice, as well as how an analysis of food might expand our understandings of embodied subjectivities and the various social structures that produce them. 3 hrs. sem.
