PSCI 369 The Politics of Food 4.0 Credits

This course examines how politics shapes our diet. Though cultural and personal preferences influence what we eat, our food choices unfold in the context of public policies such as agricultural subsidies, trade agreements, and food safety regulations, etc. The first part of the course describes and analyzes the US food system, with a focus on regulatory policies and interest group politics. The second part of the course examines the ideas and practices of food-based social movements that seek to create a food system that is less harmful to human and international health and more socially just than the existing system.
