Spring 2014 programs
We are excited to present three foreign language feature films that each take food as a central theme. The film screenings will be moderated by faculty in food studies, languages, and cultural studies. We will focus on the use of food as cultural representation, personal identity, and historical subject. Screenings will take place in the Institute for the Humanities, 701 South Morgan, Lower Level Stevenson hall at 3pm. Each screening will be followed by a reception featuring film inspired cuisine. The receptions will be free but please register so we know how many people to expect.
Fall 2013 programs
The UIC Institute for the Humanities is proud to host a special series, "New Research in Food Studies
." Food Studies is rapidly becoming an important field of research in the humanities. Inherently interdisciplinary, food studies addresses a range of issues including the history, culture, politics, of food as well as questions of environment, agriculture, globalization and social justice.
This fall the Institute for the Humanities will bring three young scholars to campus to highlight new and creative work being done in the field of food studies.
