FS: Food Politics

This module will examine the production, distribution, and consumption of food in the global political economic system. The commodification, industrialization, and internationalization of food will be investigated in the context of colonial history, contemporary development practices, and international economic institutions. The causes of hunger and famine will also be investigated, as will the challenge posed by political ecology, which invites a rethinking of the production and consumption of food.
