ANT430H5S: Special Problems in Biological Anthropology and
Food, Nutrition, and Culture
Spring 2016: Fridays 1-3 pm
Course Instructor: Lindi Masur
Food is central not only to human survival, but also our culture. In this
seminar course we will explore the relationship between food and culture
through biological, archaeological, and social anthropological perspectives,
with the hope of appealing to all anthropological sub-disciplines. Each week
we will follow a theme relevant to a broad range of theory, including diet and
the evolution of the human species, the shift between hunting and gathering
subsistence practices to agriculture, the relationship between diet and
disease in the past and present, the political economy of food, and the links
between food, ethnic identity, and gender.
