What you'll learn in this art history class:

How do we know where “the bread basket of civilization” was, and what kind of bread they were eating there?

How did gods in antiquity come to be associated with various fruits, grains, and seasons? What’s actually going on in paintings of bowls of fruit, and does Andy Warhol really just love hamburgers? In this course, we will survey the meaning of food and eating as depicted in Western art history and visual culture from antiquity through the present day; and develop our understanding of food as a visual storyteller. 

Together we will read, taste, and feast our eyes on the way that food in media has always communicated something about society at the time it was created. No historical knowledge (art, societal, food-related, or otherwise) is necessary in order to get the most out of this class—beginners to visual and food culture welcome. 

Please inform your instructor about any allergies or dietary preferences upon successfully enrolling in the class.
