FST300.1 Culinary Crossings: Exploring Mediterranean Food Systems through Photography (Signature Seminar; Spring)

During this traveling seminar, visit Nicosia (Cyprus), Siracusa (Italy), and Valencia (Spain) to explore the social and cultural exchanges that have been shaping the Mediterranean (and societies beyond) for centuries. Analyze these issues from a food-systems perspective that investigates how meaning is conveyed through food. Photography provides a unique methodological approach in order to examine how food practices express local and regional identities.

This Signature Seminar is optional and takes place after the Spring semester.
