My new class

Ok, the syllabus for my new class is cracking me up....

I recently switched my degree to sociology, and am picking classes that would compliment what I want my masters to be in, which is going to be dietetics. My first class of choice was Food and Culture. I this syllabus:

Summarize the importance of meat eating in various cultures

Explain India’s relationship with cattle

Describe the reasons for pork aversion, held by various different peoples

Explain aversions American’s have to eating horsemeat and the “holy” relationship Americans have with beef and meat eating

Describe milk as a perfect food and milk as something intolerable, by using examples cross-culturally

Identify and explain insect eating and the eating of dogs, cats, dingoes, and other creatures often deemed as pets in various cultures world-wide

Discuss the reasons behind the consumption of human flesh

Describe the meaning various foods play in the cultural traditions of peoples world-wide and how food choices give “voice” to the cultural beliefs of a group of people

Analyze a variety of religious, economic, medical and ecological reasons for the various different foods people choose to consume


This class is going to be fun AND I can totally use the message boards as an excuse for research

Re: My new class

You have to invite Jay Cohen to be a guest lecturer.

Re: My new class

Can you use the meatfest for a research assignment?

hahahhaa

Of course Jay Cohen was the very first thing I thought of. Second being Mark Sisson's article on cooking animal organs.

Re: My new class

Hehe, see, I knew you guys would all get the same giggles I did reading the syllabus.

There are several discussion boards, a couple of "quick thought" papers and I think one big paper. I'll keep you updated on the topics and what I use from this board. The quick thought papers are going to be fun - no "research" really needed, just your thoughts on life basically.

Daniel - It's an online college, American Military University.

Dang good idea Cam, not only do I have recipes for all those entree's, appetizers, I'd bring samples.
Thanks for thinking of me, looking forward to seeing ya next month. Bring the hound, he/she can play with my pups in the FENCED in back yard.

Amber, just don't let the instructor B/S the class, though maybe it might be easier to just smile, dress hot, get the A, get out with degree.

PS-just noted it was an On Line class, well, we'll send ya pic's of Meat Fest 2009 and I'll dig up some raw milk photo's from my Amish friends.

Sooooooooooooo many smart-a?? comments come to mind here But I won't go there!

Seems like a really cool subject though. Of course apart from the fact that the relationship between you and cookies is not discussed

Re: My new class

I want to take this class! I just saw somehing on the Food Network about a hole-in-the-wall place that people flock to in Canada for horse tenderloin. Of course my initial reaction was "Eww.." (or maybe it was more like "Awww... ) But then I realized, "Well, let's see, I've eaten cow, pig, chicken, and fish of course; also deer, lamb, alligator, wild boar, kangaroo, ostrich, buffalo..."

Re: My new class

I took a Sociology of Food class. Is "Good to Eat" by Marvin Harris one of your texts? His book covered a lot of the topics on your syllabus (maybe all of them?). Fascinating stuff.
