East Asian Foodways Across Borders

This five-week workshop, brought to you by NCTA at the USC U.S.-China Institute, will assess how foodways in East Asia have changed continuously through interactions among people across cultures and over time. 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 addition to required and recommended readings, participants will complete an individual research project on an aspect of East Asian foodways that pertains to your specific personal and classroom connections.
