CORE 002 SC - Hunger


Using hunger as its central metaphor, this course explores the construction of a modern self (physical, psychological, and social) through the perception or experience of lack. Readings from philosophy, literature, politics, and sociology will guide our inquiry into discourses of sexual desire, global food policy, famine in the Global South, eating disorders, capitalism, politics, and creative expression. In all cases, our approach will be intersectional, and will consider how gender, race, class, and sexual identity affect how hunger is embodied and interpreted.

Course Credit: 1.0
