SOAN 247 - Food, Culture, and Politics in Israel


FDR: SS4 Social Science - Group 4 Distribution
Credits: 3

In this course, students will explore the political and social histories of food in Israel. They will analyze how specific culinary traditions have become contested symbols of sociopolitical and religious groups. They will also discover how chefs in the region, utilizing culinary diplomacy, cook across ethnic and religious divides to bring peace and understanding. For their projects, students will produce a mini food memoir - a personal and political history of a recipe associated with their family - by utilizing concepts explored in class.
