In fall, I’ll be teaching a new 3rd year course on the History of Food at the University of Winnipeg.
* domestication of plants and animals
* the spice trade
* the Columbian exchange
* sugar and plantation slavery
* food processing
* food advertising
* “ethnic” food
* migrant agricultural labour
* snack food
Students will present their original research (with an oral history component) at the third annual Canadian Food History Symposium, after workshopping their drafts in class. And hopefully we’ll have the opportunity to do some food history-related field trips!
