IHGC 5559: The Moral Ecology of Food

This seminar treats the ethics of food as a way into questions about humanity's changing role within ecological systems. It explores the practical controversies arising within contemporary food practices -- including obligations to the hungry, response to obesity, labor fairness, and treatment of animals. It connects those controversies to broader inquiries about the meaning of food and the human presence in nature.
