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,

    Students in the past have commented that there is TOO MUCH INFORMATION available on the class WebSites.

    Yes, there is a lot of information, no doubt about it, and it can be confusing at first. It might be helpful to orient yourself from your HomePage. Most of the important information links are contained on that page.

    which has a thousand year history . . .

    In Taste of China, Part 2,"Food for Body and Spirit" we see

    What can I do with a degree in Anthropology?




    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)

    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.
