Elena Atanasiu

MTW 10:00-11:40A
1038 Wickson Hall
CRN 53305

Course Description: The intersection between food and power is affecting directly the lives of many diverse communities in the Hispanic World. Therefore, this “special topics” course in Latin American Literature and Culture, examines the cultural aspects of food in relation to identity, gender, race, class, and nation. The material addresses different historical moments, starting with Christopher Colombus’s arrival to the New World until our contemporary present. We will consider food as topic in literary works, movies, documentaries, and art in order to address issues of food justice/injustice, health, and sustainability. Some of the key questions in this course will be: How did the production, preparation, and consumption of products such as: coffee, cacao, sugar, or meat affect the lives of indigenous people, afrolatin@s, children or working class women in Latin America? How does food relate to identity, survival, and social status? What can we learn from the diverse Latin American food cultures in relation to the concept of community and humanity?

Each week we will focus on a different topic related to food. Each class session, students will be asked to read one or two primary texts or watch one or two short movies or documentaries.

Prerequisite: Any one of the following Spanish courses, SPA 100/100S, SPA 141/141S, or SPA 170/170S.
