Food is crucial in the present and the future of New Yorkers. "Gotham on a Plate", a two day conference brings together experts, scholars, and professionals to discuss aspects of food in New York City. Six panels will cover topics as varied as history, places of consumption, provisioning and the connection with the region, the impact of the media on the food business, policy debates, crises and post-Sandy resiliency. Speakers include Marion Nestle, William Grimes, Lidia Bastianich, and many more. Students taking this class for credit are required to attend both days of the conference. Write response papers for two panels on each of the days and write a 3,000 work research paper on one of the topics raised in the conference.
