Course Description

Feeding the World, ANAR 146R

What should we eat and how should we farm to guide a sustainable future? This course will examine what humans evolved to eat and how we began to first cultivate the foods we rely on today. After a survey of traditional farming methods around the world, we will examine how farming systems have changed since the Green Revolution and its successes and failures. The last part of our class will focus on the last 20 years, when humans began to modify plant life at the genetic level.
