Course number : 19423   ID : 89067    Class Section : Spring 1
« back to classes page
We'll analyze the accelerating pace of population growth, nation states, trade between continents (the spice trade), conquest, and colonization, starting with the fall of Roman Empire into the Renaissance, to examine the various food-related events that have shaped our world. An example is the Columbian Exchange's introduction of plants from the Americas into Europe and the reciprocal introduction of European animals and plants into the Americas. Using the slave trade as a starting point, this period of history is also referred to as modernity with global markets, dispossession of peasants from the land, the mechanization of labor, the first factories, and a revolution in food ways, with new crops and new ways of farming. Migration, population growth, urbanization all intensify.
