When talking about the environment, most forget that food is the primary mediation between human beings and their societies, and nature. In the social sciences, food, as a staple and as a cultural product, as well as food production and consumption, are among the most interdisciplinary theme that exist. Using a cultural and social geography perspective, which claims ties to sociology, anthropology, economy and politics, this course aims at examining the different facets and issues of the food mediation. The nature of this geographic perspective will first be discussed. We will then proceed to look at different subjects and case studies that have been at the hearth of scientific inquiries in the Anglo-American and French geographies. Mandatory readings in English will be assigned in advance for each of the subject studies, among them: food and social distinction, the geopolitics of food, food and religion, ethnic food, the fair trade connection, the question of certification, the French “terroir” concept. OBJECTIVES
1. To provide the students with a broad understanding of the scope, core concepts and some current debates and issues around the interdisciplinary social science themes of « food » and « food consumption ». 2. To familiarize the students with the geographic analysis and perspectives. COURSE FORMAT
The course format consists of 12 sessions of 2 hours (11 lectures + final exam) during the regularly scheduled meeting time for this class (Wednesday, 5 to 7 pm). Every session is built around a subject and in connection with a mandatory reading that should be read before going to class. Other references are meant to complement the lectures and to provide a setting for more in-depth engagement with the major themes of the course. COURSE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM: MOODLE
We will be using the Moodle course management system as a medium for online discussions, the posting of relevant course materials, and related course information ). All mandatory readings are already accessible, additional readings will be provided along the way. GRADE BREAKDOWNS AND EXAM SCHEDULE
Exams (60%)
The course will have one mid-term exam and a final exam. Each exam will consist of a combination of article commentary, and short-answer questions. The final exam, held during the regular final exam period, will be cumulative. Term-Paper (35%)
Each student will therefore be expected to conduct an original piece of research for this course, which will consist of a term-paper of 6-8 pages, double-spaced, 12-pt font size, 2.54 cm margins, not counting any other accompanying materials including figures, photographs, and maps. Students may work in team of three or four on the term-paper. The purpose of the assignment is to observe, describe and interpret a “Foodscape” in Paris. Step-by-step instructions will be provided in due time (starting October 2nd). COURSE SCHEDULE (TOPICS AND READINGS)
