HIST 3280 - Farms, Factories, and Food: A Global Perspective


Credit Hour(s) 3

From the 16th century to the present, the course will explore the making of the modern global food system. The course will use case studies of plants and animals’ journeys from farms to dinner plates and how they changed over time to illuminate major themes in the development of the modern world and the contemporary global food system. The course will use these case studies to explore the social, cultural, economic, political, and ecological relationships formed in and around food production, distribution, and consumption. Insights from history, cultural anthropology, ecology, political economy, and rural studies will be discussed in the course.
