Gastronomic Heritage

In this course, we will address relationships between food history and gastronomic heritage, drawing on examples from around the world and across media, including key anthropological texts, cookbooks, international policy reports, and even video game representations. We will assess culinary dimensions considered “traditional” by communities and government agencies, the archaeological and historical sources of such narratives, and impacts of gastronomic heritage on modern practices, identities, and economies.
