English 101 - Food Politics
The way we eat has changed radically over the last 100 years - a fact hidden by the fact that many foods, like eggs or oranges, look the same as they always have. From the way we grow vegatables, to the way we raise livestock to the way we attempt to suppliment our foods, these changes have had huge impacts on our health, our security, our economy and our environment. This class will look at the darker side of food production, a wasteland that includes slavery, deformity and empovrishing the thrid world. We will also explore positive alternatives to ensure that we live heathier, safer and more productive lives while securing our national and global security.
