Geographies of Food: De-industrializing, Decolonizing and Re-indigenizing (APA4244.01)

Yoko Inoue

The course examines food in relationship to land and politics in the context of the history of colonialism. We will explore indigenous voices within the theoretical framework of food sovereignty issues and the industrialized global food system. This is a transdisciplinary research-based class that investigates less obvious factors relating to space/place, heritage, cultural identity, bodies and sense of self in the politics of food. The class activities and assignments will incorporate various creative and collaborative methodologies of the visual arts, culinary practices and civic engagement.
