The Departments of Folklore and Geography will be offering a field course at Harlow next Spring called "Consuming Cultures: from field to plate" www.mun.ca/consumingcultures This Harlow Programme will run during Intersession in 2015 (mid-May to late June 2015). Comprised of four courses taught by Diane Tye (Folklore) and Charles Mather (Geography), the programme will explore cultural, political and social aspects of food in England. England is an excellent place to study food: not only does the country have rich foodways traditions, it has undergone a recent revolution in terms of food production and consumption. After two weeks of classes in Newfoundland (available through Lecture Capture to those outside St. John's), we will undertake four weeks of field trips in England to farms, breweries, museums, restaurants, supermarkets, food markets and many other sites along the chain from field to plate. To register your interest or learn more about the programme please email Diane Tye. We have a Facebook page that has just been set up, and we will use it to post announcements and updates.
Running the programme depends on us getting sufficient interest, so if you are potentially interested, please let me know, and please spread the word amongst your colleagues. This promises to be an incredibly interesting and exciting field course.
