In the last two decades there has been a culinary turn in popular culture and representations of food, cooking and their cultural meanings are ubiquitous. We will explore local, regional and national identities as they are projected in film, television, literature and public discourse about food. Moreover, this elective studies the complex social and intercultural interactions that take place around food in the modern era. Drawing on theories from the interdisciplinary field of food studies, we will also consider how food culture shapes gender, religious and socio-economic identity. This elective will appeal to students researching in areas such as cultural studies (including literature, film, television, and consumer cultures), anthropology, sociology, geography, political science and language studies. Readings will be selected in consultation with students to ensure relevance to their thesis topics.
On successful completion of this subject, students should have:
