This course is designed to explore literature and generate discussion on topics related to racism and its intersections with nutrition that create inequities in diet and diet-related disease outcomes. We will explore both the impact of oppression as well as resistance strategies. It is expected that these topics will be discussed from a range of disciplinary perspectives, and the course is appropriate for students in any Friedman program. Students will be expected to select and lead a discussion on a relevant reading at least once during the semester.
Not offered in Spring 2021.
