Video materials used in class illustrate many topics covered in this course. Consider these presentations similar to lab sessions, that is, watch them carefully and critically rather than simply watch another movie or video. The exams will include these materials, and it will be assumed that you have paid critical attention to them.

"An intimate portrait of an ancestral way of life under threat in a world increasingly dominated by large-scale industrial agriculture. .. . In an era of rapid growth of mega-farms, the encroachment of suburbia and new European Union rules and reductions of agricultural subsidies, the farmers in the Périgord region of southwest France are forced to confront challenges that threaten the very existence of their small farms. . . ."

controlled comparison—
Chinese : Buddhism : Food
in China and Malaysia

Last week we had a look at
a Taoist temple
and Buddhist Slow Food
and Locavorism
which has a thousand year history . . .

In Food for Body and Spirit we saw how food
holds a part of Chinese culture together . . .

This week, we'll see how food
tears apart a major segment of Chinese culture in Malaysia . . .
