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.
