Understanding food habits: a sociological perspective

  • Number of credits 7.5 credits

About the course

Food choice and eating behaviour are explored using perspectives such as class, gender, ethnicity, age, etc. The modern concept of individual responsibility for one’s health is pitted against existing societal structures which aid or hamper attempts to adopt healthy eating behaviours. This complex interplay of agency and structure is then applied to real life contexts through assignments dealing with availability, prevailing food and health discourses, and personal/professional development.
