Type B: Social Sciences - Food, Gender, and Health

Sociology 3115 Food, Gender, and Health
An exploration of food, gender and health. We interrogate how femininity and masculinity, as these intersect with race, ethnicity, sexuality, social class, age and place, are constructed through the socio-cultural, material and embodied domains of food. We will examine how gender and health are constructed through everyday food practices, beliefs about nutrition and healthy eating advice, representations of food and the body, food memories, food production, and food security.
