PDA 220  Pluralism & Diversity in Food and Culture in America (cross-listed with HOS 220)

 

This course is intended to teach the student the historical, geographical and cultural influences on the development of American cuisine. It presents the influence of cultural diversity on present food and beverage habits and how they have asserted themselves in the American “salad society”. There is detailed discussion of the influence of religion, history and nutritional needs on the American table. The use of foods, meal patterns and food related health concerns is used to explain how stereotyping continues to be problematic in America. Finally, gender and ethnicity issues occurring in the food business are explored.
