Description: Food and Culture asks students to investigate the cultural meaning of food practices as an important part of the human experience. This involves questions primarily aimed at archaeological cultures, but we will also consider relevant issues in our society and others in our world today. Through this topic, our primary goal is to identify ways to become better communicators and improve writing skills by building compelling and well-supported arguments appropriate for the social sciences.
