East Asian Foodways Across Borders

Foodways can be defined as culinary practices and eating habits, or described as what we eat, why we eat it, and what it means. In our five-week workshop, we will assess how foodways in East Asia have changed continuously through interactions among people across cultures and over time. In addition to required and recommended readings, you will each complete an individual research project on an aspect of East Asian foodways that pertains to your specific personal and academic interests.
