OSPFLOR 25: Italian Food: A Cultural History

Why is Italian cooking so popular? And why does it play such a key role in the national identity?nObserving a meal, we can explain everything, or almost, about people. Eating is a universal experience. However, not only we do not eat the same things but also the ways, places and times we eat change according to traditions and habits. The culture of food is deeply embedded in history.nThis course will use documentary sources as well as art, literature, cultural studies, statistical data, and movies to describe how meals can paint a fresco of the history of Italians and their food.nEconomy, culture, class, gender, race, geography, international relations: all have a part in depicting the outline of this history of Italian food in the last 150 years. And all raise questions: how can food mark social differences, set cultural boundaries, raise ethical and religious controversies, involve agribusiness and politics, question our own identities? A tasty travel to the very roots of our human sociality.
