Course Description

“What shall we have for dinner?”  In this groundbreaking book, Michael Pollan seeks to answer this question through a rich discussion about what it means to be an omnivore, yet for us to rely on a heavily industrialized food system centered on corn.  Using a combination of science and journalism, Pollan explains how corn became central to the American diet, interrogates why cheap food is more valued than tasty/nutritious food, and explores alternatives like pasture-raised farming and wild foraging. 

This will be a highly interactive, discussion-oriented class. We will spend two weeks on each major section of the book.  Students should read the assigned sections before class and come ready to discuss and reflect.

This class has an optional feedback-addon to do a final project related to a course topic.  We will have an additional live meeting to share projects, provide feedback, and discuss.
