Units: 1.5

Hours: 3-0-0

Examines human history through the lens of food. By studying how people have collected, cultivated, exchanged, consumed and imagined food over the course of 200,000 years, it will demonstrate the intersection of food history with the histories of migration, empire, environment, gender, sexuality, race, labour, art and technology. Students will develop new skills in historical thinking and an improved understanding of the historical underpinnings of their relationships to food today.
