How are various qualities of particular foods, or the manner in which they are served and consumed, claimed to be emblematic of particular elements within a culture?

alendar Description:

This course examines distinctive cultural regions throughout North America and the lifeways of the peoples living there. Students will conduct fieldwork.

Course Objectives:

This course is ostensibly a study of vernacular experience and everyday life. It could be argued that if one were to divide “folklore” (either the discipline or that which the discipline studies) into two parts, on one side would be folk literature (as broadly understood, encompassing song, narrative, jokes, etc.), and on the other side would be folklife. One could understand the former as the domain of collectors, and the latter as the domain of ethnographers; the former is text, the latter context. These distinctions will prove to be false, but provide a good starting point for discussion. Through readings and short writing assignments based on observation and/or reflection, this course will explore various aspects of everyday experience.

Short assignment. Based on your experiences (local or abroad), provide an example of how food, eating, foodways, and menu repertoire are used to express cultural identity. How are various qualities of particular foods, or the manner in which they are served and consumed, claimed to be emblematic of particular elements within a culture? How is contrast with other groups emphasised? Through a variety of axes (familiar/exotic; edible/inedible; palatable/unpalatable) how are boundaries between groups maintained and how are they (purposefully) transgressed? What conclusions can you draw about the food and identity from this analysis?i already upload the instruction of assignment , there are some of the information in article .in case if you need any thing .
