Slow Food: We Are What We Eat - FYS

                                            

Slow Food is an international movement that began in Italy in 1986, emphasizing Good, Clean, and Fair food. In this course, we will discuss the history, philosophy, and influence of the Slow Food movement worldwide while examining the problems with the modern agricultural machine both in a local and in a global context. Topics of discussion will include the importance of local and seasonal produce, the inherent connections between plate and planet, the water footprint of food, labeling of GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms), biodiversity, and the ethics of meat production and consumption.
