Are you really what you eat, and if so, what does that mean? Food carries historical and cultural meanings: from SoMe food pornographers and ethically-inspired vegans to the public health challenges of toxic food environments, diet culture, and malnourishment, we all have a relationship to food that surpasses mere physiology. This course will explore the psychological, neurocognitive, and sociocultural aspects of our relationship with food to better understand its meaning in our everyday lives.
