HIST-2422A Historia de la Comida

Do you know where the ingredients of the food you eat come from? Why you eat chicken more frequently than meat? Why McDonalds has been more successful in China than in Colombia? This course explores the long and interesting history of food. From animal and plant domestication to genetically modified organisms, it examines the way in which food has played a key role in the affirmation of identities and the definition of nations, as well as why it has produced political struggles.
