Inhalt

Food: Just part of our everyday lives? But when was the last time you really thought about what was on your plate? That is, hunting and vegetarianism, farming and water shortages, ideas of the 'exotic' and 'normal', global and local interrelations, cannibalism and other taboo foods, gendered cooking practices (home cooking vs. chef), or just where the stuff in the Mensa comes from? A matter of global concern and local significance, the subject of this class will give rise to the application of a wide variety of analytical approaches as well as in depth discussions about food.

This cultural studies class will take food as its main concern, looking at it from all different angles and in a range of different media, including recipe books, philosophical tracts, fast food advertisements, passages from fictional texts, blogs, films and menus. These texts will be then placed in the context of larger critical debates.

A reader will be made available in the seminar. Texts which are to be purchased will be announced at a later date. Students will be expected to participate in discussion, maintain a journal of responses and to submit a larger project after the completion of the class.
