"Let's Eat: Food in Contemporary American Culture," a six-week home study course that begins April 4, is being offered to members of the University community by the Alumni Association.
Jenna Weissman Joselit, a lecturer with the rank of professor in American studies, will lead the course, which is based on a freshman seminar. She will examine themes such as: the relationship between food and national identity; food and faith; health and body image; and the history of ethnic cuisine in the United States.
The course will consist of readings and online discussions. To wrap up the class, participants are invited to an optional discussion and wine tasting at the Princeton Club of New York on Thursday, May 19.
