The topic of food and the food industry is now part of our popular culture. In the last 10 years or so, there has been increased interest in learning about topics related to American food culture, food production, and the politics around food and the food industry.
For this assignment, you will watch a documentary related to food and write about it as it relates to what you have learned in this class. You can pick any documentary related to food that interests you.
The college library has two major databases to stream documentaries, these are Films on Demand and Kanopy. Films on demand is the easiest to use but does not have the selection that Kanopy has (which requires that students create a password). Kanopy has many films to choose from, just type in “food” in the search bar or type the name of the documentary, if you already have one in mind. If you have Netflix, Amazon prime, or some other access to videos, you can go ahead and find a film there, but please do not feel like you need to subscribe to Nextfix to complete this assignment.
Among the more popular films on Kanopy are:
In Defense of Food
Super Size Me
Hungry For Change
Fat, Sick, Nearly Dead
Just Eat It
Edible City (this one features the Bay Area)
If you have a Netflix account, here is a list of some films that are available to stream right now:
What the Health?
Forks Over Knives
The Magic Pill
For your Discussion:
1. Watch a film (any film on food, the food industry, or food and health that interests you).
2. Summary: Write a short summary about the film and the major topics that it addresses (please make sure the summary is your original work)
3. Analysis: How does this film relate to what you have learned in this class? (What I mean by this is, food is more than just related to our biology, but it’s also about culture, communites, inequalities, neighborhoods, social class, and power (here I’m thinking about major companies controlling food production).
4. Make sure to use at least three course terms in bold in your analysis. These terms can be theories, terms, concepts or trends from this class.
