Course Code: WFOO Category:


From Swann’s Way’s nostalgia-inducing madeleine, to Eat, Pray, Love’s love affair with pizza, to The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe’s enticing Turkish delight, the foods we encounter in literature often stay in our memories longer than some meals we’ve physically eaten. In this class we’ll explore how food can be used to capture emotion, convey history, and animate the senses. In addition to discussing great examples from fiction and nonfiction, sample class assignments will include documenting your own food traditions, writing about invented foods, and trying a new-to-you food. Expect to read, write, and even eat in this Zoom-based class.
