Food, Culture, & Communication

Food, Culture, and Communication
In this course we will examine the dialogue between the science of body and the science of place. Our goals will be to enhance understanding of the human body through experiential anatomy and also heighten sensitivity to food both as culture and as a medium for communication. Weekly movement sessions, readings, and writing assignments will encourage a synthesis of personal experience with factual information. Beyond one exam and formal writing assignments, students will present a research/culinary project and maintain an exploratory journal. This course counts as DANC/ENVS 0277 for the Creative Arts Focus in Environmental Studies, or as a cognate for ES majors doing a science focus.
