SOAN 241 - Food, Culture, and Society in Ireland


FDR: SS4 Social Science - Group 4 Distribution
Experiential Learning (EXP): Yes
Credits: 4

This four-week course provides students with an immersive experience into Irish cuisine, culture, and society. The opening sessions focus on representations of food and drink in Irish literature and culture, and then we segue into socioeconomic issues that have impacted food practices in Ireland. These include the Great Famine, emigration, the Slow Food movement, and sustainability initiatives. Classroom sessions are supplemented with fieldtrips within Dublin, a day trip to Causey Farm, and a three-day trip to Cork and Cloughjordan Ecovillage.
