"What you eat, and why you eat it . . ."

"This course dared me to find out where our food comes from, and has changed the way I think about the world. The 'textbooks' . . . were a joy to read. In short, this is the one course everyone who eats needs to take." Andy Kadlec, UMD Labovitz School of Business

Why food?

“Food is required by every human on earth, yet the types of food we eat and how we produce and consume it vary tremendously. It is therefore a nearly perfect subject for anthropology, since it can be examined in terms of human biology, culture, and social status across time from our evolutionary ancestors to the present day. . . .” -- Ryan Adams, IUPUI Anthropology

Just Checking In

Have a look at the linked materials in the various units as you go along (such as the "On-Line First-Day Handout" in the next section), and look at the slide materials* (indicated by .pdf .pptx).

There will be more slides towards the beginning of the term, and more videos towards the middle and at the end.

The .pdf .pptx slide materials closely follow The Cultural Feast textbook. Some folks like to look at the slides before they read the assigned materials, some prefer to read the text(s) first. Either way is fine.

 The Cultural Feast.

It is generally best to watch the videos after you have looked at the slides and reading material(s).

 

*A note on the slide formats: Since at this point we do not know what software you are using on your computer, we offer the slides in two formats. We recommend you first try "(.pdf)" pdf logo.png, the “Portable Document Format” that is the open standard for document exchange. If you have problems with that format, please try "(.pptx)" pptx icon.jpg, Office PowerPoint 2007. It is unlikely that you will have problems with both of them, but if you do, please let us know: troufs@d.umn.edu. When the materials are on your screen they should be running as a slide show. If you want or need to upgrade your software, you can download the latest PowerPoint viewer free, as well as download the latest Adobe .pdf Reader free.

Thanks—Tim Roufs

Students in the past have commented that there is TOO MUCH INFORMATION available on the class Moodle and supporting WebSites. Yes, there is a lot of information, no doubt about it, and it can be confusing at first. It’s helpful when starting out to remember that the required information for the course is contained in the middle panel of your Moodle HomePage. The information in the sidebars and many of the links are just there should you find those interesting and/or helpful.

"Here's what I'm interested in doing. . . .

Here's why I'm interested in that. . . . 

Here's what I think will be useful for that project. . . .

What do you think?"

 

Or, it can be something like . . .

"I'm thinking about doing a project on X or Y, but can't make up my mind.

Here's what I'm interested in, and why. . . .

Here are some things that look like they might be useful for the project. . . .

What do you think?"

With the help of real farmers, powerful fertilizer, government aid, and genetically modified seeds, the friends manage to grow one acre of corn. Along the way, they unlock the hidden truths about America’s modern food system."

"Following up on their Peabody winning documentary, the King Corn boys are back.  For Big River, best friends Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis have returned to Iowa with a new mission: to investigate the environmental impact their acre of corn has sent to the people and places downstream.  In a journey that spans from the heartland to the Gulf of Mexico, Ian and Curt trade their combine for a canoe––and set out to see the big world their little acre of corn has touched.  On their trip, flashbacks to the pesticides they sprayed, the fertilizers they injected, and the soil they plowed now lead to new questions, explored by new experts in new places.  Half of Iowa’s topsoil, they learn, has been washed out to sea.  Fertilizer runoff has spawned a hypoxic “dead zone” in the Gulf.  And back at their acre, the herbicides they used are blamed for a cancer cluster that reaches all too close to home."

While you are watching The Two Fat Ladies do a "freelisting" of the things that The Two Fat Ladies talk about or mention that are not specifically related to the actual cooking of the meal in the kitchen. Freelisting is a technique commonly used by anthropologists when doing fieldwork, and it's basically just making a list of the things you're focusing on—but a complete list.

Unit 9
 Feeding Frenzy - The Food Industry, Marketing & the Creation of a Health Crisis
(63 min., 2013, UM Duluth Library Multimedia RA645.O23 F43 2013)

Feeding Frenzy (UMD Library)

"Over the past three decades, obesity rates in the U.S. have more than doubled for children and tripled for adolescents -- and a startling 70% of adults are now obese or overweight. The result has been a widening epidemic of obesity-related health problems, including coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes. While discussions about this spiraling health crisis have tended to focus on the need for more exercise and individual responsibility, Feeding Frenzy trains its focus squarely on the responsibility of the processed food industry and the outmoded government policies it benefits from. It lays bare how taxpayer subsidies designed to feed hungry Americans during the Great Depression have enabled the food industry to flood the market with a rising tide of cheap, addictive, high calorie food products, and offers an engrossing look at the tactics of the multibillion-dollar marketing machine charged with making sure that every one of those surplus calories is consumed."

Credit Options at UMD




This course is governed by the . . .

University of Minnesota Duluth Student Academic Integrity Policy
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/integrity/Academic_Integrity_Policy.htm>

UMD Office of Student and Community Standards
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/>

"Academic dishonesty tarnishes UMD's reputation and discredits the accomplishments of students. UMD is committed to providing students every possible opportunity to grow in mind and spirit. This pledge can only be redeemed in an environment of trust, honesty, and fairness. As a result, academic dishonesty is regarded as a serious offense by all members of the academic community. In keeping with this ideal, this course will adhere to UMD's Student Academic Integrity Policy, which can be found at [http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/integrity/Academic_Integrity_Policy.htm]. This policy sanctions students engaging in academic dishonesty with penalties up to and including expulsion from the university for repeat offenders." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)

and the UMD Student Conduct Code
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/code/>

and the

Student Conduct Code Statement (students' rights)
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/conduct/conduct-statement.html>

The instructor will enforce and students are expected to follow the University's Student Conduct Code [http://www1.umn.edu/regents/policies/academic/Student_Conduct_Code.html]. Appropriate classroom conduct promotes an environment of academic achievement and integrity. Disruptive classroom behavior that substantially or repeatedly interrupts either the instructor's ability to teach, or student learning, is prohibited. Disruptive behavior includes inappropriate use of technology in the classroom. Examples include ringing cell phones, text-messaging, watching videos, playing computer games, doing email, or surfing the Internet on your computer instead of note-taking or other instructor-sanctioned activities." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)

Instructor and Student Responsibilities Policy

AVISO!

A Note on Extra Credit Papers

Failure to comply with the above codes and standards when submitting an Extra Credit paper will result in a penalty commensurate with the lapse, up to and including an F final grade for the course, and, at a minimum, a reduction in total points no fewer than the points available for the Extra Credit project. The penalty will not simply be a zero for the project, and the incident will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards.

 

A Note on "Cutting and Pasting" without the Use of Quotation Marks
(EVEN IF you have a citation to the source somewhere in your paper)

If you use others' words and/or works you MUST so indicate that with the use of quotation marks. Failure to use quotation marks to indicate that the materials are not of your authorship constitutes plagiarism—even if you have a citation to the source elsewhere in your paper/work.

Patterned failure to so indicate that the materials are not of your own authorship will result in an F grade for the course.

Other instances of improper attribution will result in a 0 (zero) for the assignment (or a reduction in points equal to the value of an Extra Credit paper), and a reduction of one grade in the final grade of the course.

All incidents will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards as is required by University Policy.

Students with disabilities:

It is the policy and practice of the University of Minnesota Duluth to create inclusive learning environments for all students, including students with disabilities.  If there are aspects of this course that result in barriers to your inclusion or your ability to meet course requirements – such as time limited exams, inaccessible web content, or the use of non-captioned videos – please notify the instructor as soon as possible.  You are also encouraged to contact the Office of Disability Resources to discuss and arrange reasonable accommodations.  Please call 218-726-6130 or visit the DR website at www.d.umn.edu/access for more information.
