This course analyzes different dimensions of food consumption and production. First, we seek to answer multiple ethical questions regarding food consumption. Should we eat animals? Do we have a responsibility to reduce hunger in the world? Should we embrace or avoid bioengineered food? Are health issues connected to foods consumption a private or a political question? What is our responsibility towards our environment? Second, we analyze the politics of our food systems. Who decides what, for whom, why, and how?
