The world of food involves a dazzling array of legal and policy issues. This course will focus on issues related to discrimination and inequality--particularly in relation to race, gender, and immigration status. Topics will include worker rights in the agriculture, food processing, and restaurant sectors; intellectual property and cultural appropriation issues connected to food; and problems related to food insecurity and the government programs designed to address it.

Students will be required to submit weekly 1-page responses to the assigned reading in advance of each session.

This class is designed to give students an extra opportunity to engage despite our remote form of interaction. In light of that goal, this class will expect real-time attendance and may not be recorded. The total written work requirement will be no more than 8 double-spaced pages.
