This course is comprised of four modules: The Food of History; Anthropology of Food Globalisation; Food and Communication; and, Food, Heritage and Tourism. Focus in this specialisation is on the role that food plays in our communities and societies, how we are influenced and impacted by food and in turn, how food is impacted by us.
This Specialisation is taught by an interdisciplinary and international team of experts. With this training, students will understand the history of food, up to the way that food is currently interpreted, eaten (diets and nutrition) and marketed.
This Specialisation in Food and Society can be taken as a stand-alone certificate. It also makes up a mandatory part of the Master's in Food, Culture and Territory and the Postgraduate Diploma in Food, Culture and Locality.
The Specialisation in Food and Society is also an elective in the Master's in Food, Society and International Food Governance.
