Course Spotlight: Food and Gender

complete housewifeDr. Karen Metheny will be teaching Food and Gender during the Fall 2015 term. This 4-credit course takes an anthropological, cross-cultural, and interdisciplinary approach to the study of food and gender, looking at how masculinity and femininity are defined through beliefs and practices surrounding food and body. Students will engage in a semester-long research project using ethnographic and oral interview techniques such as food-centered life histories.

This class will meet on Monday evenings, from 6 to 9 PM, starting on September 14. The course is open to graduate students and advanced undergraduates. Non-degree students may also register. Please contact gastrmla@bu.edu for more information.
