HIST-3267-FA001: Food, Land and Subsistence in Human History

We invite community members to join our Community Engagement Courses. As you immerse yourself in the course content of your choosing, you will have the opportunity to connect with both the course instructor and Nipissing students. There is no requirement to submit coursework, nor will you receive a grade for participating in the course. This course will contextualize current worries about the environmental, supply, and health problems of the world food system by exploring the cultural and environmental history of food. The focus will be on food as a product of human-environment interaction through agriculture, humanity's main source of food and central form of interaction between humans and the rest of nature. Topics will include the origins of agriculture and food in the ancient and medieval world, but the course will focus on the development of a world food system in the 19th and 20th centuries.
