EV 260: Topics: Food and Environment in Colorado

Block A1 CC unit (4 semester hours) Cornelius, Tyler


Course Description: 
This course begins with one central analytic contention: that food – and the exigencies of its production, distribution, and eventual consumption – reflects and creates the broader power relationships that animate American society, past and present. To investigate how global, national and local food systems shape Colorado, we will meet with local farmers, community gardeners, food wholesalers, distributors, entrepreneurs, and community food activists. Students will examine a broad range of materials including history, documentary film, fiction, photography, advertisement, government legislation/regulation, the built landscape around us, and…food itself. This class will be both interesting and delicious!
