Description :

This course focuses on the theme of food in Italian cinema, literary texts and other cultural products.  We will study symbolic, realistic, erotic and political functions surrounding the preparation and consumption of food in its artistic representations. Analyzed within specific cultural and historical contexts, both as a reality and a metaphor, food and eating practices will give us original perspectives on various issues regarding gender, class and traditions. Topics  and authors will include, among others: kings, peasants and their diets; the cuisine of the Enlightenment;  food and gender roles in the works of Serao and D'Annunzio; children's literature; Artusi and the birth of the Italian nation; Futurist cuisine; Italian American traditions; post-feminism; Slow Food revolution. This course will include field trips to Eataly, cooking classes and collaborations with Barilla’s headquarters in Illinois. May be repeated for a maximum of 6 hours.
