Crops, recipes, and culinary techniques have traveled across regions and populations since the beginning of human cultures. This course focuses on the dynamics beyond these movements and the role they played in the globalization of consumption and material culture. We will examine the role that food has played in trade, territorial expansion, ecological imperialism, migrations and other worldwide phenomena. Using cultural and political interpretive frames, the course will examine cases from around the globe.
