Instructor: Amelia Kibbie
Length of course: 8 weeks
Course description: Every human in the world needs to eat to survive. But food is so much more than just physical sustenance — it shapes who we are. Food touches us in so many ways, and bleeds into our emotions, our memories, our body image, and our culture. Food is power, food is sex, food is love; our lives are entwined with the rituals of cooking and eating. This course will examine a variety of written works about food, and students will use this tasty framework to craft their own poems and personal essays to examine the role food plays in their own lives. This writing will be edited and revised with feedback from the class and professor.
