SOC 386 Sociology of Food and Agriculture

Food plays a central role in our daily lives, connecting us to each other and to the natural world. This course will focus on the social context of food and agriculture and the political economy of the food system. We will look at the ways that food choices can build community, contribute to environmental sustainability, and support health and well-being. We will also explore how the contemporary production (agriculture), distribution, and consumption of food reflect social and economic power relationships.
