Why might a novelist choose to focus on food (or a chef) in order to tell a particular tale?  How do writers use the language of food to explore issues such as gender, sexuality, race and nation? What can a study of food tell us about the dynamic of power and its circulation in US culture? This class interrogates the ways food functions as a symbol in literary texts; we will also consider how writers deploy narrative form and language to capture the sensual pleasures of food. Our entrees will consist of novels and short stories, but sides may include memoir, food essays, and cookbooks.

When Offered Fall.
