Robinson Hall A249

Section Information for Summer 2014

Humans have an integrative history that transcends the histories of particular regions, nations, or ethnic groups.  The complex interaction of world cultures necessitates a shared sense of humanity—of “global citizenship”.  This course will follow the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the twenty-first century: from humankind’s adoption of agriculture, to the birth of cities, to the advent of globalization.  Using food & drink as a window on the history of mankind, we will explore how history, culture, politics, sociology, and religion have determined how and what people have eaten through the ages.
