History 489 (Hi 89): Reading Seminar: Food and Drink in Society

Class Time: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:30 AM-12:45 PM

Description of the Course: Food and drink are omnipresent in our lives, and yet we do not often think of them as subjects for historical study. In this course we will read a variety of books and articles exploring the role of food and drink in history. Our readings will show how food and drink can provide insights into a range of human experiences: gender roles, commerce, national identity, immigration, religious practices, and environmental changes.

This course is taught by: Professor Matthew Masur
