East Asian Food And Identity

This two-week course will look at the globalization and consumption of East Asian food.

Food and foodways follow people as they move to new places. Diets change with changing work schedules and living standards. Changes in transportation and demand have changed how food is produced and distributed. In this online seminar, you’ll learn about the globalization and consumption of East Asian food. What do people eat and why? What is the place of food in family habits and rituals? Why do some dishes become spectacularly popular outside their homeland and others don’t?
