ANTH 374 - Food for Thought: The Anthropology of Eating


3 Credit(s)

The interplay between eating behavior and cultural institutions has had a tremendous impact on human behavior and behavior conversely influences anatomy and physiology. This course will look at the interrelationships between eating behavior, cultural institutions and human evolution. We will focus on scavengers, hunters and gatherers, pastoralists, horticulturists and agriculturalists discussing food procurement strategies, food preparation techniques, and eating behaviors. Students will prepare and eat a variety of foods common to each subsistence strategy. As warranted.
